Biosafety And Biosecurity for Pathogens and Toxins Newsletter
Message from the Director General
At the Centre for Biosecurity, we strive to maintain excellent client service standards and open communications with our stakeholders and partners. We are keen on hearing about new and innovative ideas and means of doing business, and as such, we are pleased to announce the launch of our latest App: the new Pathogen Safety Data Sheet (PSDS) App! The PSDS App includes all of the content currently available online in a format that is compatible with your mobile device. More information on how to download the App can be found in this newsletter issue.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing you with timely information to support your organization’s transition to the new Human Pathogens and Toxins Regulations later this year, in this issue, we are pleased to offer information on the Plan for Administrative Oversight for licence applicants who plan on carrying out research activities.
In this issue, we also provide you with a comprehensive list of the various conferences for which Centre for Biosecurity representatives will be participating or presenting in the months of May and June, as well as updated information on the courses offered by the Centre on Laboratory Biosecurity and the Necessary Skills for Biosafety Professionals.
As always, I encourage you to connect with a member of Centre for Biosecurity team at any of these events to ask any questions you may have regarding the current and/or new pathogen control framework.
