Testing "Biosafety Expert" online format
Dear BCH users,
The assignment this time is dedicated to BIOSAFETY EXPERT (EXP) record type. Since it is a National Record, this test assignment is mainly for CPB focal points, NAUs and BCH focal points.
However, all regular BCH users can still test the Search interface, which we encourage you to do.
The test assignment is explained below.
Perform the following (test site address is: https://bch.cbddev.xyz/register
STEP 1: Test the Submission process (this is for NAUs and CPB, BCH focal points).
In SUBMIT interface:
1. Create an Expert.
2. Edit and Expert.
3. Delete an Expert.
STEP 2: Test the Search interface (for all users).
In SEARCH interface:
1. Find your expert. Examine the record. Try editing it from the Search interface (if you are a regular user, you will not see the "Edit" button).
2. Search for experts using various filters, including record ID.
3. Test the “View Type” and “Sort By” filters (top right corner). Please note that in “View Type”, the "Matrix" filter is not functioning at this time.
This informal video also briefly describes the test assignment in both Submit and Search interfaces and points out a few new features: https://youtu.be/6QJs4hXsXxo
DEADLINE: Friday – 18 September.
Thank you for all your support!

I looked at your – as always - crystal clear video and the system looks pretty straightforward to me.
The search interface works fine. I did not enter a test biosafety expert, because it will in the end only countries that can enter biosafety experts.

I tested the creation, searching, editing and deletion of biosafety expert profile and all worked fine as shown in the video.

It was fine with Test 1, while the newly loaded expert was not able to be found by SEARCH that seems to be unfunctioning since 5 Sep.
And please check the file attached here for a minor correction.

I have tested the creation, editing and deletion, and everything works well.
Just small proposal. I noticed when fulfilling "Areas of Expertise", there was only one option to choose for the area of professional expertise that most closely matches the experience of the nominee. At the same time, I feel that some experts may have the equal level of expertise for close-related areas and it would be important to indicate both. For example, for risk assessment and risk management. So, may be it will be better to indicate in preambula to this paragraph, that nominee may choose one or more areas, or one or two areas (or 1-3).

I and NAU tested the creation, searching, editing and deletion of biosafety expert profile and everything worked well without any problem.

I (NAU) performed the test together with our NFP and it all worked very well!
I only have one minor remark: wouldn't it be convenient to be able to directly link to the organization that the respective expert is working for within the expert's record (BVL in my case, as I entered a test record for myself as an expert)? Currently, the organization's contact information (name, address, what kind of organization it is) has to be entered by hand. As the BVL is registeres in the BCH anyway, would it not be possible to choose and link it directly?
Maybe there is a reson you decided not to do that. It is not a major issue, maybe just a minor inconvenience. Of curse, if an epert is working for an organization that is not present in the BCH, the option to enter the organization's information separately is still needed.
Thanks for your great work!

Dear Anastasia Beliaeva,
This second phase of the new BCH platform testing was interesting. The two steps were made simple by following the rules. It was easy to find and create an expert and examine records. It was an interesting exercise. Thank you for providing a guide through the interesting video.
