- changing the status of a registration

Submitter: The only status available for this role are PREPARATION and CURATION. As long as the registration with the scientific name and type designations is being edited and modified by the submitter, the registration is in PREPARATION. Once the editing process is completed. The submitter will set the status to CURATION in order to pass the data set to the curatorial process. The curator is now responsible for further state changes.

Curator: For curators all status are available but the selection of the available status is limited to guarantee a directed and clear workflow.
Only states which make sense for the next step in the workflow are allowed.

The possible transitions are:
