Select Agent Oversight - GAO Report

01 Nov 2017 4:06 PM | Daniel Kümin (Administrator)

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) today released a report on high-containment laboratories and Select Agent Program oversight. Key among the findings is the realisation that the focus of the program should shift to risk assessment to identify high-risk activities which are more likely to be of biosafety rather than biosecurity concern. For more details please see the report here. Furthermore, Reuters also published an article on the subject which may be accessed here.
