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. In addition, many countries have prohibited the most troubling applications of human biotechnology: inheritable human genetic modification and human reproductive cloning. To date, they are illegal in over 40 countries.
