The Committee supports recognition of multiple official repositories over a single repository, and accepted three: Fungal Names, Index Fungorum, and MycoBank starting 1 January 2013, noting that parties representing the three have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation that expires immediately following the next International Botanical Congress in 2017. The effectiveness of this arrangement will be evaluated and reviewed by 2014 when the International Mycological Congress must ratify the NCF recommendations.
