Designating or updating National Authorized Users (NAUs)

 23 Nov 2021 02:43

The User Management page is accessible through the Submit page and allows Biosafety Clearing-House National Focal Points (BCH-NFPs), in the case of the BCH, and ABS Publishing Authorities (PAs), in the ABSCH, to add, edit or delete roles of National Authorized Users (NAUs) for some or all types of National Records. When adding a new NAU, the BCH-NFP/PA will be asked to enter the e-mail address of the person to be nominated. The system will automatically search for any match in the list of registered users in the BCH and ABSCH, respectively. If the new NAU is not yet registered, it will ask for further details. Whether the user is new or already registered, the system will present to the BCH-NFP/PA a list of roles that can be added.

Note that once a role is added or modified, an automatic e-mail message is sent to the NAU with the notification of the new role(s) and a link to updating the profile or resetting the password.

Instructions for BCH-NFP/PA:

  1. Sign in to the Submit page.
  2. Click on the User Management tab.
  3. To add a new NAU: click on the Add Authorized User button and then follow the online instructions.
  4. To edit an NAU role: click on the ‘list’ icon. Then follow the online instructions.
  5. To delete an NAU: click on the ‘trash bin’ icon.

Tip: Use the free text box on the right top corner to find an NAU by typing a word of your choice, or the e-mail of the person you are searching for.
