Caribbean Centre for Biosafety

The Caribbean Centre for Biosafety (CCB) has been conceptualized as a virtual information hub, which will serve to provide project countries with access to a range of resources to enhance the sustainability of biosafety in the Region. As a major component of the regional biosafety clearinghouse (rBCH), the CCB will function as a portal via which:

  • information on current biosafety issues is disseminated;
  • updates on biosafety in the Region are provided; and
  • decisions made at the national level with respect to living modified organisms (LMOs) are shared

Countries will also have access to three major resources via this portal.  These include the:

  1. Technical Resource Group on Biosafety
  2. Regional network of laboratories
  3. MSc. Biosafety 

In addition, the following are also accessible via the CCB:

  • Roster of experts
  • CPB and BCH educational resources
  • SCBD BCH capacity building
  • LMOs
  • Resources
