THE NEW LEGAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE ACCESS TO GENETIC RESOURCES AND PROTECTION OF THE ASSOCIATED TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE
This paper aimed at presenting the new Brazilian Legal Framework on the access to genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, Law No. 13123 of May 20, 2015, emphasizing the new requirements for those wishing to conduct research wth those items. To do so, we highlighted fragments of the new norm which imposed mandatory compliance requirements to researchers, those which still depend on regulations to achieve full efficiency and the penalties that may be imposed to the offenders of this law. Finally, it has been concluded that the new legislation came to streamline the bureaucracy of the access for the research purposes, but the complementary regulation must be observed carefully by stakeholders, because on this will depend the flow of the processes for the access and the regularization of the research.
