|Welcome to the SMTA application.|
The Agreements signed by the Centres with FAO on behalf of the Governing Body of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (the Treaty) on 16 October 2006 oblige the Centres to deal differently with the Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA) they hold and have brought under the Treaty, depending on whether or not the PGRFA is listed in Annex 1 of the Treaty.

PGRFA of crops listed in Annex 1 to the Treaty fall under the Multilateral System of Access and Benefit-sharing established by the Treaty. As from 1 January 2007, all transfers of PGRFA of crops listed in Annex 1 must be under the Standard Material Transfer Agreement (SMTA) adopted by the Governing Body of the Treaty at its First Session in June 2006. The SMTA will replace, for Annex 1 material, the Material Transfer Agreement currently in use by the Centres.
