Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs)

A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is a document used to outline the terms under which material is supplied. CBD-friendly MTAs generally set out permitted uses of material, terms for supply to others, requirements for benefit-sharing, and usually, non-commercialisation. Many gardens now use a standard form, to which extra terms can be added where necessary (for example if the material was acquired under a more restrictive permit). keeping track of agreements
