The objective of this Masterclass is to offer a broad view of the Brazilian Regulatory Framework for Access to Genetic Heritage (GH), Associated Traditional Knowledge (ATK) and the Benefit-sharing obligations. It comes from the vision, analysis and understanding of 14Bisness on the subject. Information to deepen the content is included as support material for download. It is NOT the objective of the Masterclass to offer a complete or exhaustive report on the subject, given the compact nature of the Masterclass and the high-level complexity of the ABS regulatory compliance, the dynamic and continuous updates of the legislation, and numerous possibilities of issues related to accessing the Brazilian GH and ATK by different types of users. The videos and the support materials should NOT be taken as 14Bisness offering any legal advice to Masterclass registrant or its organization, but as solely practical interpretations on access to biodiversity in Brazil, to contribute with an overview of the concepts and compliance demands of the legislation in force. In the light of its own interest and consideration, decision-making, operationalization, and compliance effects related to the Brazilian ABS law, the Masterclass registrant, its organization and legal representatives are entirely responsibility for their own actions and consequences. It is expressly agreed that in any case or in any circumstances may the 14Bisness nor its instructor be held jointly liable with the Masterclass registrant and/or his/her organization and legal representatives for their acts related to this legislation.
