ABS Procedures

  13 Nov 2018

We would like to introduce a new national record format for Governments called ABS Procedures!

ABS Procedures provide simple and straightforward guidance on how to apply for access to genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge.  This record type has been developed based on feedback received from users of the ABS Clearing-House and in consultation with the Informal Advisory Committee. 

These records, published by Governments, will be available to all as national records in the search and in the country’s profile. Given the utility of this information for users of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, all Parties regulating access are be encouraged to make this information available on the ABS Clearing-House.
