Legislation Governing the Loan of Australian Museum and Herbarium Specimens
Thu Jan 17 16:42:52 CST 2002
IT IS NOW ILLEGAL FOR AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTIONS TO LOAN YOU MATERIAL!!!
- UNTIL YOU COMPLETE THE NEW REGISTRATION FORM.
Australia has just imposed new legislation concerning the exchange of museum
and herbarium specimens. As of January 11, 2002 all the old legislation,
forms and registration numbers are invalid.
In order for Australian institutions to be able to send material to you,
your institution has to re-register with Environment Australia.
Fortunately, this is a simple process - you just fill out a form and send it
in. Email Angela Tsang [angela.tsang at csiro.au] and she will send you an
electronic version of the form.
Further information is available at the following website:
No matter what your standing or previous agreements, IT IS NOW ILLEGAL FOR
AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTIONS TO LOAN MATERIAL TO YOUR INSTITUTION UNTIL YOUR
INSTITUTION COMPLETES THIS FORM AND RECEIVES A NEW REGISTRATION NUMBER.
Please pass this message on to anyone who might want to borrow Australian
