Climatic conditions, pests, and diseases vary across regions and countries. Regulation of agricultural technologies differs around the world to reflect the specific needs of the country or region. However, regulatory agencies around the world often share the same overall goals. This creates an opportunity for alignment of regulatory approaches as well as collaboration between countries. This can include information sharing, joint assessments, recognition of other countries’ regulatory approvals, or adoption or referral to decisions of standard setting bodies or regional institutions.
