Biosafety directives and advisories

Biosafety directives

Biosafety directives provide regulated parties with the customized containment requirements for activities with a specific pathogen or group of pathogens when the containment level does not align with the risk group.

Biosafety advisories

Biosafety advisories are developed when the data obtained from a risk assessment of a new or emerging pathogen of interest indicates that new physical or operational requirements are required to work with the pathogen safely. The new operational and physical requirements need to be disseminated to interested parties as soon as possible.
