2016-01Access to genetic resources: EU Specialty Food Ingredients appointed member of the ABS Consultation Forum

Following the publication in November 2015 of the Implementing Regulation of the ABS Regulation (on compliance measures for users from the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization in the Union), the European Commission set up a Consultation Forum to discuss the issues for which guidance is needed. Together with its members AMFEP (enzymes) and EFFCA (cultures), the EU Specialty Food Ingredients has formed a group to which membership in the Forum has been granted. This will allow stakeholders to better understand the scope of application and core obligations of the EU Regulation implementing the Nagoya Protocol for the specialty food ingredients sector.
