The Nagoya Protocol
The Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit sharing (ABS) entered into force in October 2014, is an international agreement that aims to ensure the benefits arising from research and development of genetic resources (plant, animal and microbial material) are shared in a fair and equitable way. In the UK, Regulatory Delivery, which is part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), is the competent authority responsible for UK implementation and supporting UK users to understand and meet associated obligations.
Come along to meet Katie Beckett, a member of the Regulatory Delivery Team and find out why Access and Benefit Sharing might be of interest to you.
Online bookings will close on Tuesday at 10am and you will be informed of the room later on Tuesday afternoon by email. Please make sure the email you provide is correct, otherwise you will clearly not receive notification of the room.
