The author discusses the scientific standards and the regulation of genetically modified (GM) insects. They talk about the regulatory process of countries including Malaysia, the US, and the Cayman Island, in terms of pre-release transparency and scientific quality. They also suggest the need to reject the perception that accurate and informed public engagement is a means to delay technological development in order to avoid the abandonment of the GM insect technologies.
