    Fostering and securing human resources in science and technology are vital challenges that Japan faces to promote STI coverage. The Federal Authorities developed a Coordinated Framework for the Regulation of Biotechnology in 1986 to provide for the regulatory oversight of organisms derived via genetic engineering. The three principal companies which have provided primary guidance to the experimental testing, approval, and eventual commercial release of these organisms thus far are the USDA’s Animal and Plant Well being Inspection Service (APHIS), the Environmental Safety Agency (EPA), and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The approach taken within the Coordinated Framework is grounded in the judgment of the National Academy of Sciences that the potential risks associated with these organisms fall into the same basic categories as those created by historically bred organisms.
