Today genetically engineered products are being designed for uses outside the contained environment of the laboratory. Because of fears over the possible consequences of releasing new organisms into the environment, both the United States and Great Britain are taking steps to try to ensure that such releases will be safe. This Note examines the regulatory schemes of those two countries and concludes that additional changes must still be made if comprehensive oversight of the field is to be achieved.
