Brazil: Federal Rules on Access to Genetic Resources Changed
On 05 January 2004 a decree issued on the last day of 2003 was published in the Diario Oficial da União that alters the federal rules on access to genetic resources. Among other things, the Decree makes it clear that when the proposed access involves potential of economic use (vs. pure scientific), the applicant must submit a Contract on the Use of Genetic Patrimony and Benefit Sharing (with those holding “traditional knowledge” associated with the genetic resources in question) to the Genetic Patrimony Management Council (CGEN) for prior approval.
Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/temasa5/public_html/whats_new/news_page.php on line 475
