One of the greatest uncertainties surrounding the use of plants for the production of pharmaceuticals is the regulatory landscape. While plants are grown in glasshouses and in enclosed bioreactors, the production of pharmaceuticals is regulated in the same way for other production systems, and comes under the authority of the FDA and equivalent agencies in other parts of the world. The switch to openfield conditions adds another layer of regulatory complexity, because the transgenic plants then come under the authority of APHIS (part of the USDA) or their counterparts in Europe and other regions.
