People with an interest in the conservation and management of genetic resources are invited to join the consultation register for Access to Biological Resources Permits.
The permits are required for the collection of biological resources from Commonwealth areas for the purpose of research and development into their genetic and biochemical makeup.
Once on the consultation register, you will be invited to comment on any permit application received which the Minister for the Environment believes is likely to result in a more than negligible environmental impact. We will provide you with any documents relevant to your consideration of the proposed access.
To register, please contact the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 02 6274 1767. You will need to provide your name, organization, address, contact number and email address. Involvement is on a voluntary basis.
More information on access to biological resources in Australia can be found at Australia's biological resources.
