Primacy of affiliated data submission routes
RECOMMENDATION 4: PRIMACY OF AFFILIATED DATA SUBMISSION ROUTES
Biological records for a specific National Recording Scheme, recording group, project or organisation should be submitted via their affiliated route.
The most appropriate affiliated route should always be used and no organisation should divert biological records from these routes in conflict with the NBN Atlas. To avoid duplication of effort and indirect data flows, biological records should not be submitted to any other third party.
Any organisation wishing to aggregate biological records for their own use, or to provide services to others, should take records directly from the NBN Atlas so that all users access the same definitive version of each record with a unique NBN Atlas global record identifier.
Where further assistance is needed to submit or provide records, Recorders should seek support from any NBN Regional Hub Partner.
