Any person can have a CBD account which will give her/him access to submit information in all CBD clearing-houses, including the Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH), the ABS Clearing-House (ABS CH) and the clearing-house mechanism (CHM) under the Convention. You can register for a CBD account using a valid e-mail address at: https://accounts.cbd.int/signup. Make sure you enter all the information required as instructed on the form and click “Submit”. You will automatically receive an e-mail with a link to confirm your account.

You can access all clearing-houses and the CBD website with the same CBD account.


You can also create an account directly through the Clearing-House website:

  1. Click on SIGN IN on the top-right corner.
  2. In the box that opens, click on “Create an account”.
  3. Enter all the information required on the form and click “Submit”. You will automatically receive an e-mail with a link to confirm your account.
