Select Agent Registration

The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have identified bacteria, viruses, toxins, rickettsia, and fungi that pose a potential threat to public health or welfare. These organisms and toxins are considered Select Agents.

Laboratories currently in possession of, or intending to obtain select agents must be registered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the Biosafety Office and must adopt security and control measures acceptable to the governing authorities. Contact the Biosafety Officer for more information on the current status of these emergent regulations.
