We've now released the online version of the Plant breeder's rights (PBR) examiner’s manual of practice and procedure. 

The manual includes sections on our service level commitments, the process we follow for acceptance of applications, test growing, the use of overseas data and variety denomination assessment. Information in the manual will show you what we look for at various stages such as when we accept your application or examine your plant variety for distinctness, uniformity and stability.

The manual can provide some insight into the PBR examination processes and promote a better understanding of PBR requirements. It is written in general terms and is not intended as a guide for applicants. We are making it available as an additional source of information.

The PBR Examiner’s manual is available to read online.
