Ethiopian Biodiversity Institute Material Transfer Agreement

Ethiopian Biodiversity Institute Material Transfer Agreement

Also consult the nationally delegated institution (i.e. the Institute for Biodiversity Conservation) before entering into an international agreement involving the transfer of the country`s genetic resources. Download code of conduct below. In addition to the legal procedures mentioned above, researchers should be informed that endemic species, wild relatives and genetic species of national economic priority, like. B coffee, cannot be exported for study purposes. For this reason, the Institute strongly encourages research on this type of material within the country (Ethiopia) by working to build institutional capacity. In addition, threatened, threatened and almost extinct species are prohibited by law. Currently, our country has developed national laws that address access to genetic material and benefit sharing. However, it is very difficult to control the flow of genetic wealth from countries in different directions without a concerted effort and shared responsibility for the benefit of our country and the local community that has been saving these resources for generations. 1.7 Although the overall structure of the MTA is similar, the specific content varies depending on the search objective, the expected outcome, the amount needed, the country of destination, etc.

To do this, it is advisable to copy the MTA (MS Word) format attached here and fill/modify the format according to the requirements. Please take a look at the sample of the export agreement to find a clear understanding of what is needed. 2.8 Official letter indicating that materials are free of GMOs and invasive alien species. The Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (IBC) is responsible for granting authorisation to those who must export genetic material abroad for research purposes. Ethiopian researchers wishing to conduct their research abroad on Ethiopian genetic material or materials must obtain IBC`s permission before transporting the material to another country. 1.5 Five (5) copies of the MTA signed by the researcher and stamped by the Researcher`s Reception Institute must be produced at the same time as the official letter for a faster moderation process. Previously, students of different levels of education, researchers, researchers, etc., have legally and illegally taken genetic material into the country. But this has led to biopiracy, which has led to abuses of organisms such as patenting and prevents the country in general and the Community in particular from profiting from the exploitation of their genetic wealth. . .

. In addition to the export authorization instructions for Ethiopian researchers, foreign applicants must meet the following conditions: provided that all of the above requirements (1-4) are met, we can provide germinating plasma within 48 hours of submitting the application. Note that there are scientific processes (acclimatization) that take us 48 hours to prepare the germinating plasma from the geneaal bank. 1.1 Applicant must submit an official letter from his original organization For more details and assistance, please contact us at the following addresses: 1.2 Applicant must submit a revised and certified copy of his research proposal (no more than 15 pages) – with a brief introduction, objectives, clear methodology, expected results and usefulness of research in Ethiopia. In order to facilitate the process, the applicant must meet certain requirements. These are: – . 1.4 When samples are collected by the researcher in different parts of the country, passport data for samples must be attached and exact copies of samples must be provided to the Institute with the formal letter of request.
