To apply to possess, use, or transfer select agents and toxins (as described in 7 CFR 331, 9 CFR 121, and 42 CFR 73), entities initiate the application process through the submission of APHIS/CDC Form 1 via the Electronic Federal Select Agent Program (eFSAP) information system.  Information requested in this form includes: facility information, a list of select agents and/or toxins to be possessed, used, or transferred by the entity, a list of individuals who will have access, or potential access, to select agents and toxins, and information about the work to be performed. A sample of this form is available to help potential applicants understand what information is needed when completing this form in eFSAP.

The APHIS/CDC Form 1 is also used to amend an approved registration. To amend an approved certificate of registration, an entity completes the submission eFSAP.
