TESTING of new BCH platform - First Phase

Test Assignment: SPCAs and National Websites and Databases [#10542]
Dear Forum Participants,

Thank you very much for performing the first test and thank you for all your feedback! The Biosafety Team is looking into all your comments and we will be implementing  the recommendations.

Thanks to your comments, a few bugs that were discovered by you in the process of testing, have been fixed already. One common comment was about the “Processing” time for loading the application, publishing/deleting records. We have made some changes, so the system should be operating faster now. Advise: please try using different browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, IE. Some of you mentioned that Google Chrome worked best. We will continue making further changes in this regard.

This time, we would like to ask you to perform TWO other simple test similar to CNA. These tests are for focal points only – BCH, CPB focal points and National Authorised Users (NAUs) - because it has to do with National Records which only you have access to.

DESCRIPTION OF TEST:

ASSIGNMENT: In National Records, create an publish a “Supplementary Protocol Competent Authority (SPCA)” and “National Biosafety Website or Database (NDB)”.

Please note that the “Supplementary Protocol Competent Authority (SPCA)” is not currently available in old BCH. It is a new record type that will be implemented in the new BCH. The role of this competent authority is to perform the functions set out under Article 5 of the Nagoya – Kuala Lumpur Supplementary Protocol on Liability and Redress. The SPCA you create on the test site will NOT appear as your national record in the old/current BCH!

The submission of the “Supplementary Protocol Competent Authority (SPCA)” is very similar to the creation of a CNA but has its specificity. It is important for us to know your experience with publishing this type of record.

INSTRUCTIONS:

IF YOU are a BCH FOCAL POINT, perform the following:

1. Log in to https://bch.cbddev.xyz/.
2. Click on SUBMIT tab (on the bar on top).
3. Create and publish a new “Supplementary Protocol Competent Authority (SPCA)”.
Remember, this is a test data and will not affect any current national records of your country and will not appear in the old/current BCH. The SPCA you create will NOT appear as your national record in the old/current BCH.
4. Once you see that the record is "Published", click on SEARCH tab (on the bar on top).
5. In the SEARCH interface, search for the SPCA you have just created.
6. Go back to SUBMIT section and try to edit (or delete) and re-publish the same record.
7. Go back to SEARCH, find the edited record and verify the changes made.

REPEAT the same steps above for “National Biosafety Website or Database (NDB)”.

Please use the “?” mark at the bottom of the screen to ask questions (if need be) online during the process. During the above process, you can also save the record as a draft and come back to it later. After this test, please send us your feedback with your experience with the above process by Monday - 6 April.

******************

IF YOU ARE a CARTAGENA PROTOCOL FOCAL POINT (CPB FP) or a NATIONAL AUTHORIZED USER (NAU), perform the following:

1. Log in to https://bch.cbddev.xyz/.
2. Click on SUBMIT tab (on the bar on top).
3. Create a new “Supplementary Protocol Competent Authority (SPCA)”.
Remember, this is a test data and will not affect any current national records of your country and will not appear in the old/current BCH. The SPCA you create will NOT appear as your national record in the old BCH.
4. Click on "Publish". Your request will be sent to the BCH Focal Point who will need to approve and publish the record you just entered.
5. After the record is published by the BCH FP you will see its status as "Published". Click on SEARCH tab (on top bar) and, in the SEARCH interface, try to find the record that you have created and that has been published.
6. Optional: you can go back to SUBMIT and try editing or deleting your record. But, only the BCH focal point will have the right to validate your changes.

REPEAT the same steps above for “National Biosafety Website or Database (NDB)”.

Please use the “?” mark at the bottom of the screen to ask questions (if need be) online during the process. During the above process, you can also save the record as a draft and come back to it later. After this test, please send us your feedback with your experience with the above process by Monday – 6 April.

********

DEADLINE: Monday – April 6. Please send us your feedback by that date.

Thank you again for all your support!

Kind regards,

Anastasia

Dear Anastasia,
I and BCH NFP performed the two tests (SPCA & NDB) and they worked fine with us.

But, there is this little warning message from our web Advisor McAfee (in red on attached file image),  that this site is not safe.

Dear Anastasia,

Everything works well. I have successfully done an exercise by using Google Chrome Browser (Windows 10, official version).

I also have tried Internet Explorer Browser, but it doesn`t work on the stage of data saving. I think it is old one. Last time I didn`t noticed that Internet Explorer opened by default when clicking on the link and I also had problems with data saving and correction.
So, now will use Google Chrom. It`s really works.

Dear Mr. Rahagalala,

Thank you for performing the test.

Please ignore the McAfee message. It is normal as the site domain is not well known. My IT team advises not to worry about it. The test site is quite safe.

Kind regards,

Anastasia

Estimada Anastasia,
Estuve en el nuevo Websites y base de datos. Me pareció fácil de usar y luego de utilizarlo

Dear Anastasia,

the tasks for the SPCA worked fine. However, I could not edit the created (published and searchable) NDB. Although it is available in the list of NDBs, the status never changes from "processing" to "published"

Dear Anastasia,
I'm testing the new BCH using Google Chrome, as you suggested. It works somewhat faster. I was not able find the name of our CP NFP dr. Batic in the list of contact persons, so I was not able to add this record and I skipped it. After publishing I wanted to perform Search, but the page is cycling saying "loading files from server".
I'll try again on sunday
Best wishes

I have carried out the tests successfully and published both an SPCA and a NWD record. I was able to search for them and alter them before resubmitting them again. For information I use Internet Explorer and Windows 7. The time to upload and search was ok; maybe lagging sometimes but by no more than 30-60 seconds.
(I performed this task with the permission to publish of my National BCH focal point)

Japan has tested many times since we received the request on March 30th.  Since both BCH Focal point and CP Focal point tried many time by using some browers such as  Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge and Google Crome.  Our trial failed until today.  CP Focal Point at last could open the designated site and created the record and sent it to BCH National Focal Point.

Dear Anastasia,
I was able to do the test on SPCA and National Websites and Databases as a BCH  Focal  Point. Everything worked out very well. I could also see changes made as per our experiences with the first test. The meaning of the icons (۷, +, Ξ) in front of SPCAs and National Websites and Databases were still not coming up when pointed at. The meanings should show before they are clicked
to enable the Focal Point determine what next to do. Other than this, the overall experience was fine.
Thanks

Dear Blessing,

Thank you.

The meaning of the icons (۷, +, Ξ) will eventually appear. It will be implemented one way or another but this will come later. We did take note of this.
