Bioprospecting, biologic resources, genetic resources, research permit, public policy, biopiracy, environmental authority, Nagoya Protocol, decision Click here to sign up. The following variables were analyzed from this information: Despite the evolution of international policy on bioprospecting, Colombian regulations on the matter still lack uniformity with these international policies.

According to the information private entities applying for these permits did so in provided by 24 of the 28 Colombian Environmental the context of environmental impact studies for Authorities Regional Autonomous Corporations in future project development.

While it is fitting to differentiate Another major obstacle faced by researchers between the two processes, the procedures to bioprateria is the inordinate amount of time required by the first process are just as dilatory as the second. To this end, we requested information from the environmental authorities regarding study permits issued for scientific research on biodiversity and access granted to genetic resources.

While it is fitting to differentiate between the two processes, the procedures to fulfill the first process are just as dilatory as the second. There is no coordination between environmental authorities and the National Department of Science and Technology, the entity responsible for implementing research promoting policies, regarding the enforcement and the requirements of research permits.


We also examined the number of research groups in Colombia registered under national directives. The main obstacle is the wait time required for competent authorities to reach a decision regarding the request. In some cases, the procedures failed to expedite the prior but did manage to make the permit application process more complex for the latter. Permits data for access to genetic resources and scientific research on biological diversity in Colombia As a result, the small financial investment allocated by the State to promote understanding of the country’s biodiversity was squandered due to existing legal and administrative impediments.

According to the information obtained from public records, and supplemented by administrative acts carried out by ANLA and MADS between January and Marchauthorizing or denying access to genetic resources, the duration of the procedure has been between 1 and 65 months. In accordance with Article 46 of Decisionand Act of which established the proceedings of environmental sanctions, persons carrying colmobia bioprospecting activities without due authorization shall be punished; however, only one sanction has ever biopirateeia imposed in Colombia on this account.

A review of all the bioprospecting projects registered biopiratrria the Science and Technology ScienTi platform, which collects information from all the Colombian research groups GrupLAC registered with Colciencias.

In Ecuador, under the Unified Text of Secondary Environmental Legislation of the Ministry of Environment, scientific research in biodiversity within national Natural Heritage Areas requires the authorization of the applicable Regional District, and investigations outside the national Natural Heritage Areas do not require research authorizations, unless the project colmbia the collection of specimens or samples.


The proposed procedures should be While the proposed amendments to Decree modified to counteract these deficiencies and they Universitas Scientiarum Vol. In the first case, the National Service of State Protected Biopirwteria Areas is responsible for issuing permits, and in the second case, the General Forestry and Wildlife Office is the responsible agent.

According to regulations current during the period of this research all types of projects requiring an environmental permit also require an environmental impact study, most of which in turn, require biodiversity studies.

When information reported by the CAR is contrasted with publications or information on the Colciencias platform, we found that projects were commenced or their biopiateria had already been prior to being issued a permit by the environmental authority; hence, the permissions were requested in order to legalize research projects in which, for example, the collection of specimens had already taken place.

Bioprospecting in Colombia

Consequently, an excessively restrictive legislation does not guarantee, in the case of research or access to genetic resources for commercial purposes, a better position in negotiation. A substantial lack to commercial studies, and those regarding of knowledge and expertise as well as a deficiency academic research, is ambiguous.

Brazilian Journal of Biology 68 4s: Inthe Convention on Biological Diversity CBD was ratified by Colombia by the incorporation of Lawinto national legislation, since then, bioprospecting has been defined as the systematic pursuit, classification and research of new sources of chemical compounds, genes, proteins and other products that make up biological diversity and which have real or potential economic value. In the last five years, copombia overall number of bioprospecting undertakings in Colombia increased nearly 8 times suggesting the importance this subject is acquiring within the country’s scientific interests.
