Our “ABS world” infographic provides a quick and easy overview of whether your research leads to ABS or compliance obligations.
Information about access and benefit-sharing (ABS)
Many countries around the world regulate access to non-human biological material (“genetic resources”) for research purposes, requiring benefits arising from this use to be shared. This is referred to as “access and benefit-sharing”, or ABS for short.
As an academic researcher, you may need an ABS permit and to sign a benefit-sharing agreement.
