Are you an academic researcher or a company specialising in agri-food, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, seeds, cosmetics, etc.? Do you handle or have you received genetic or biochemical resources from an animal, a plant or a micro-organism?
Then you may have to comply with the requirements of legal or regulatory provisions applicable in certain countries with regard to access and benefit-sharing (ABS), for the use of this type of resource. If so, the issuance of your IP rights may be affected locally by these provisions.
