This article analyses the regulatory responses to human embryonic stem cell research adopted in England & Wales, the Netherlands and Germany. It is suggested that despite the widely diverging cultural, political and economic views found within the European Community, there is at least a minimum standard of consensus. Moreover, it is submitted that the European Community has a role not only in facilitating research at a community level, but also in informing the continuing debate at a national level that will be required to address the highlighted problems of the regulatory schemes adopted in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany
