Innovation and performance in the pharmaceutical industry is increasingly dependent on collaborations, partnerships and access to state of art technologies and materials. At GSK, biological materials and technologies are acquired from commercial vendors, collaborators, academic and governmental institutions. These materials and technologies are always accompanied by contracts, that set the limits of the receiving and providing party rights, in a variety of forms such as general terms and conditions (T&Cs), Materials Transfer Agreements (MTAs), Limited Use Label Licenses (LULLs), Patent or know-how licenses and many more. The cost of non-compliance with terms set in these agreements could be legal, financial and reputational. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that externally-facing companies have the right processes in place to monitor which materials enter into their organization, under which terms and to ensure compliance with the contractual restrictions set by the providing third party.

Compliance to biological licenses is an emerging topic and is gaining more visibility since the entry into force in October 2014 of the Nagoya protocol. The aim of this talk will be to share some of the best practices implemented in GSK pharma R&D in order to mitigate the risk associated with Biological licenses including Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) under the Nagoya Protocol.
