With the absence of any legislation regulating testing or approval of biotechnology events in Kazakhstan, leaders rely on Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) regulations for guidance. Product labeling requirements for genetically modified organisms (GMO) can be problematic for importers. The law on Seeds Farming restricts genetically engineered (GE) seeds growth to laboratories. However, even with this limitation, Kazakhstani researchers developed a new transgenic breed of cotton with pesticide resistance. The Government of Kazakhstan shows little interest in developing new regulations more favorable to biotechnology at this time.
