Designation of the ABS Clearing-House publishing authority and national authorised users1

Fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory.


In order to operationalize the ABS Clearing-House, Parties need to designate a single publishing authority to clear national records for publication in the ABS Clearing-House.

The registration of who has the authority to publish national records in the ABS Clearing-House can only be done by the Secretariat upon receipt of an official written communications addressed to the Executive Secretary and endorsed by the focal point for Access and Benefit-sharing (ABS Focal Point). The duties of the ABS Focal Point could also be expanded to incorporate the role of the publishing authority.

The designation of national autorised users can be done at any time by the ABS Focal Point or the publishing authority.

These designations may be sent to the Secretariat by postal mail, fax or as an attachment to an e mail and must contain the complete contact details and the appropriate endorsements.
