Revised simplified procedure for the selection of European Accessions
- Accessions originating within the country (Check the old name of the country! For example, accessions from Czechoslovakia should not be excluded/forgotten, but they could be selected as appropriate by the Czech Republic or by Slovakia)
- Accession collected or received from collecting missions outside the country and considered unique (after verification that legal status allows distribution with SMTA)
- At the discretion of each country is the option of considering additional criteria such as completeness of passport data, presence of characterization data, safety duplication, quality of material, etc.
NOTE: WHAT TO DO In case country Y intends to take primary responsibility for accessions originating in its country, but realizes that another country X has already flagged them for long-term conservation as part of the European Collection in country X. ⇒ Country Y should proceed with flagging these accessions in EURISCO and at the same time contact the NC of country X to recommend de-flagging by country X.
