In the use of genetic resources, the Culture Collections of Public Health England (PHE) will put in place best practices to comply with national legislation to implement the Nagoya Protocol and will perform due diligence regarding access and benefit sharing in all its activities involving those resources. PHE’s aims are to engender trust, to facilitate science, and to ensure that benefits are shared.
What is the Nagoya Protocol?
The Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization (ABS) to the Convention on Biological Diversity is a supplementary agreement to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). It provides a transparent legal framework for the effective implementation of one of the three objectives of the CBD: the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of the utilisation of genetic resources.
