Limited Research, No Clear Regulations

Regulatory status of gene drives has not been determined.

Worldwide, gene drive regulations are in flux. Gene drives are being developed using transgenic technology (GMOs) that contain foreign genes, as well as gene editing, including CRISPR (synthetic gene drives), which do not, complicating regulatory oversight as gene editing and GMOs are often regulated differently.

Japan has not determined the regulatory status of gene drives.
