DSB report - Biological Safety and Security

New report from the Defense Science Board

Department of Defense Biological Safety and Security Program

"This report examines the biological safety, security, and personnel reliability programs of DoD's biological labs, compares these labs with other similar operations in academia, industry and the federal government. The report offers recommendations for improvements in the DoD program based on this comparison. The task force found that safety and security of the DoD facilities that they assessed are as good or better than those in comparably sized facilities in other government, industry and academic sectors and that DoD regulations exceeded those imposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
