The Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH) provides various help tools (materials) to assist with website navigation and performing various tasks. Below is a list of various help materials available in the BCH, which are also demonstrated in the informal VIDEOs, created in-house by the Secretariat:
#4: TOURs - these are virtual self-explanatory tours that walk users through a page, identifying key functions and capacities of the respective sections. Tours are especially useful for first-time users.
Tours are available on the following pages: “Country Profiles”; “Submit” – on the Dashboard, summary of records page and online Submission form; “Search”.
#7: Training Site - accessible through the “Help” menu on the top navigation bar. The training site is a mirror copy of the official BCH and has been implemented to help users familiarize themselves with the various functionalities of the BCH. Once signed in, users may practice submitting records, for training purposes only, as (i) a general registered user, (ii) a BCH National Focal Point (BCH-NFP), (iii) Cartagena Notional Focal Point (CPB-NFP), or (iv) a National Authorized User (NAU).
By default, on the Submit page users have “Registered User” roles with access to Reference records only. To change your role, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
