Bioprospecting in Colombia | Universitas Scientiarum –

Bioprospecting, biologic resources, genetic resources, research permit, public policy, biopiracy, environmental authority, Nagoya Protocol, biopiratdria Similarly, may submit research projects for approval to the Conpes document ofwhich generated National Competent Environmental Authority colomgia policies on biocommerce and biotechnology, AACN. Under this new regulation, Resolutionspecifically regulates procedures concerning “study permits for scientific research in biological diversity”, and Decree and Resolution ofwhich have been applied in accordance with the mentioned Decree, have regulated access to genetic resources.

Under MADS Resolution of July 29, the Institute of Biotechnology IBUN of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, was sanctioned for violating environmental regulations set forth in Article 16 of Andean Decision of and accessing genetic resources by isolating and identifying a microorganism belonging to the genus Lactococcus sp, and obtaining, for research purposes, a naturally occurring biopolymer created by the microorganisms enzymatic activity without having registered the pertinent access contract with the State through MADS.

The information obtained on the number of access to genetic resources and biodiversity research permits issued per year, permits issued by environmental authority, research permits and permit processing times was used to create the frequency diagrams in Figure 1. Andrade G Estado del conocimiento de la biodiversidad en Colombia y sus amenazas.

Article 2 of Decreementions biological resources in reference to biodiversity research, it is therefore important to establish that the term “biological resource” refers to the individuals, organisms or parts thereof, populations or any biotic component of value or real or potential use in the genetic resource or its derivatives. The elicitation procedure for a biodiversity research study permit has a duration of 30 days and requires biopirzteria following steps: Biota Neotropica 5 1: The differentiation between the provisions relating 4 Institutional Ineffectuality: Another major obstacle faced by researchers is the inordinate amount of time required by environmental authorities to adjudicate on biological resources research permits and access to genetic resources.

Permits data for access to genetic resources and scientific research on biological diversity in Colombia Colombia established as cloombia authorities able to issue permits for research on biological As stated in Article 9 of Decree of resources and the National Parks System ofthe environmental authority must grant Colombia – SPNN study permits were granted or deny the permit within thirty days from during January to Marchthe highest submittal of the application.

In line with Decision of of the Andean Community of Nations, the Colombian Bkopirateria regulated scientific research on biodiversity and the access to genetic resources through Decree ofwhich was amended by Decree ofmaking a distinction between the two procedures.

The report assembled information on biological resource research permit applications from January to March According to regulations, policy recognized the involvement of diverse actors, this procedure takes from 30 to 45 days and is whose interaction can simultaneously strengthen processed by the ANLA in accordance with the the participation in the system and also generate a provisions of Decision MADS a.

Some of the issues potentially causing these high levels of clandestinity in bioprospecting for scientific purposes are:. Developing Bioethics 6 3: We have no certainty about how many species there are in the world, how many ecosystems or genetic relationships exist, or about the number of species that originate or disappear naturally or as a result of ecosystem alterations.

Transactions of the Institute Review of the MADS public record of access to genetic resources hereinafter public record that collected information from applications submitted from January to March Universitas Scientiarum 18 2: Given the current of its biodiversity. This policy recognized the involvement of diverse actors, whose interaction can simultaneously strengthen the participation in the system and also generate a series of socio-environmental conflicts generated by tensions, disagreements, confrontations and clashes between them MADS The study on the effectiveness of the Colombian system on this matter evinced that although the implementation of CAN Decision has enabled the creation of legislation particular to this topic, it has also generated negative impacts for scientific research, to the extent that illicit prospecting activities have become common.

In an effort to prevent this clandestinity, Decree-Law 19 of extended a one-year amnesty to researchers prospecting without the permits necessary to legalize their access to genetic resources activities.


All of the biological diversity: Forasmuch, it is crucial that we Sanctions for unauthorized bioprospecting strengthen, as it is in most developing countries activities: The following variables were analyzed from this information: Division of organisms being studied under biodiversity scientific research permits bilpirateria access to genetic resources permits d. Meanwhile, there are 10 steps which must be followed to attain a permit to access genetic resources: Permits for research In this context, the objective is to illustrate activities within the National Parks system are the effectiveness of policies and rules governing issued by the Special Administrative Unit of the bioprospecting activities for scientific purposes in National Parks System MADS Colombia.

Of the research groups registered with Colciencias, we found groups that registered bioprospecting projects between January and March The information we have is very limited.

It is thought provoking that regarding environmental licensing, only projects involving hydrocarbons requested permits for biological resources research. The proposed procedures should be While the proposed amendments to Decree modified to counteract these deficiencies and they Universitas Scientiarum Vol.

Among megadiverse countries 14Colombia is classified globally as a country with high biodiversity. A substantial lack to commercial studies, and those regarding of knowledge and expertise as well as a deficiency academic research, is ambiguous.

To do this, we first examined the operability of biological resources research permits. Accordingly, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development MADS created special forms to request permission for scientific research in biodiversity and to access of genetic resources.

The following variables were imposed for non-compliance with bioprospecting taken into account: Given that the record from January to March as a result of is updated towe completed it by using bioprospecting activities that did not comply with administrative acts granting authorizations for the requirements established for that purpose.

In accordance with Article 46 of Decisionand Act of which established the proceedings of environmental sanctions, persons carrying out bioprospecting activities without due authorization shall be punished; however, only one sanction has oclombia been imposed in Colombia on this account.
