NATIONAL COORDINATION CENTRE ON ACCESS TO GENETIC RESOURCES AND BENEFIT-SHARING

CHECKPOINT FOR MONITORING THE UTILIZATION OF GENETIC RESOURCES
27 February 2017

The Nagoya Protocol was adopted by the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2010. Since then, several countries have developed legislation to implement the Protocol. The European Union adopted regulation (EU) 511/2014 on compliance measures for users from the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization in the Union (EU ABS Regulation), and developed implementing regulations and a guidance document.

The aim of this study is to analyse the EU ABS regulation, the Implementing Regulations and the Guidance document to showcase several concerns that arise from the narrow scope of the Regulation.
