Important Remarks: 

An edited record goes through the same validation process as a newly created record. National Records are validated and published by the BCH National Focal Point in the BCH and ABS Publishing Authority in the ABSCH. Reference Records are verified for the accuracy and completeness and then published by the Secretariat. Once the record has been validated and published, the submitting user will receive an automatic e-mail notification that the record has been published. In some cases, the user may receive a request for more changes prior to validation.
