BfN Schriften 524 - Vilm ABS Dialogue 2018 – Informing about Domestic Measures for Access to Genetic Resources: Final Report

After entry into force of the Nagoya Protocol and the corresponding Regulation (EU) No. 511/2014, European users of genetic resources (GR) are required to "exercise due dili-gence" to ensure that they have acquired GR or associated traditional knowledge (aTK) in accordance with the national access procedures of the respective provider country. In Ger-many, as in other EU member states, “competent national authorities” (CNAs) for Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) are in the course of formation and a first meeting of European CNAs already took place in March 2017 on Vilm-Island.

Beschreibung

One of the discussed implementa-tion challenges was the availability of transparent and reliable national access regulations in provider countries. CNAs, as the German Nagoya CNA-Unit, are repeatedly being asked for information and advice in this regard. But the ABS Clearing House (ABS-CH), designed as the key tool for information exchange aiming at enhancing legal certainty, clarity, and transparency on procedures for access to GR, is not yet sufficiently populated and thus does not allow users to gather the relevant information for the vast majority of countries.
