Countries differ widely in the ways they regulate human biotechnologies, including the practices and products their policies cover, the jurisdiction of authority, and the nature of enforcement. A few, most notably the U.K., have established agencies responsible for licensing and monitoring research and commercial facilities that work with human embryos.

To date, they are illegal in over 40 countries.
