What's New: 2020

The Federal Select Agent Program (FSAP) wishes to share a preview of its new draft policy, Biosafety for Large Animal Study-Related Activities with B. abortus and B. suis Using Outdoor Containment Spaces, with the regulated community prior to posting the draft policy in the Federal Register.  FSAP is sharing this proposed policy for review and to provide a heads up on the upcoming opportunity to provide feedback by submitting comments through the Federal Register process.

The draft policy states that biosafety plans for large animal B. abortus or B. suis outdoor containment studies within endemic areas of the agents should contain sufficient information for FSAP to determine that the study can be safely conducted in compliance with the select agent and toxin regulations.
