Important remarks: 

Deletion of a record goes through the same validation process as creating or editing a record. Deletion of a National Record is validated and approved by the BCH National Focal Point in the BCH and ABS Publishing Authority in the ABSCH. Deletion of a Reference Record is verified and approved by the Secretariat. Once the record has been deleted, the submitting user will receive an automatic e-mail notification that the record has been deleted.
