None of the rights or obligations arising from this Agreement are otherwise transferred or transferred without the prior written consent of the other contracting parties. 7) the transfer of scientific knowledge, knowledge and technology for the control of the BIO member to a supplying party that, a) results from the study of the collected genetic resources, and b) concerns the conservation, conservation or physical manipulation of the collected genetic resources. 12) “informed prior consent,” an agreement between a BIO member and a supplying party, establishing that the BIO member provided the providing party with information that met the requirements of Section III of these guidelines regarding a regulated genetic resource to which the BIO member had access. Comment: The definition of benefits to be shared will be very different depending on the needs of the transferor (s), the needs of designated beneficiaries such as Aboriginal or local communities, the commercial value of the transferred physical samples, the expected use of the samples, the likelihood of using the samples to produce a commercially viable product, and other factors. Therefore, it is not appropriate to propose a model formula for the nature of benefits or how benefits should be shared, as no uniform definition will be appropriate in all circumstances. For incoming MTAs (since the owner of the research material determines the conditions under which he wishes to share the material with our university), the PI/PI department should secure the MTA proposed by the owner of the research material For simple transfers without intellectual property, the NIH recommends a simple letter agreement. For materials that can be patented or for which increased protection is desired, the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) can be used. Many U.S. educational institutions have signed the UBMTA Masteragrement.

[2] AUTM (formerly the Association of University Technology Managers) serves as a repository for UBMTA`s original master`s contracts and keeps the list of signatories. [3] UBMTA signatories must only sign a letter of execution containing the details of each transfer, since they have already agreed to all the terms of the master contract.
