Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity

Welcome to the Swiss ABS Clearing House.

The Swiss ABS Clearing House is the information node on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization (ABS). Its aim is to facilitate the exchange of scientific, technical and legal information on ABS between parties and the general public.

 

The Federal Council passed the Nagoya Ordinance on 11 December 2015. Together with the Nagoya Protocol and the provisions in the Federal Act on the Protection of Nature and Cultural Heritage it forms the basis for the legal use of genetic resources from other countries. The ordinance also regulates the access to genetic resources in Switzerland. The Nagoya Ordinance substantiates the provisions in the Nature and Cultural Heritage Act  for the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol in Switzerland and thus ensures greater legal certainty. The ordinance entered into force on 1 February 2016. Further information
