There is currently a lack of regulatory clarity in the European Union (EU), as well as in other countries, for the application of genome editing in plant breeding. We argue that the development and application of genome editing may eventually bridge the regulatory discrepancy between the relatively unregulated so called conventional breeding techniques and the overregulated transgenic techniques. We also propose a participatory discourse that may help shifting focus from technique to trait in the regulation of plant breeding techniques.
