Technical Resource Working Group on Biosafety

Technical Resource Group on Biosafety – draws on a wide range of expertise from across the Region, which exists at the national level in each of the project countries in varying disciplines.  In addition to those persons who comprise the official national roster of experts in the area of biosafety, the Group also includes persons who have benefited from the capacity building efforts undertaken by the regional component, as well as graduates of the MSc. Biosafety.  The main role and function of this group will be to provide support to project countries in the area of risk assessment of applications, where the relevant capacity does not exist nationally. 

To fulfill this mandate an ad hoc committee will be convened as required, based on the nature of the application, and in keeping with the guidelines developed for the operation of the Group.  Requests for assistance to the Group can be submitted here.
