On 10 May 2019 the European Commission officially recognised the ‘Code of Conduct and Best Practice for Access and Benefit Sharing’ of the Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities (CETAF) as Best Practice and included it in the register of recognised best practices on the Access and Benefit Sharing website of the European Commission.

‘Best Practices’ under the terms of Article 8 of EU Regulation 511/2014 (the EU ABS Regulation) are procedures, tools or mechanisms, developed and overseen by associations of users or other interested parties, which, when effectively implemented, help users of genetic resources to comply with the obligations of the EU ABS Regulation.
