Update on Future of CWA 15793 Laboratory Biorisk Management

We would like to provide you with an update on recent activities regarding the future of the CWA 15793 Laboratory Biorisk Management. As you may know, the document is scheduled to expire this year and a number of options for its future are being discussed by an International CWA Steering Team (Chaired by Gary Burns with representation from IFBA, EBSA and ABSA) and others across our global biorisk management community.

Recently, there has been an exchange of views between the International Steering Team and ISO Technical Committee 212 in adapting CWA 15793 into an ISO deliverable (e.g. Technical Specification, ISO Standard). The matter was discussed at a plenary meeting of TC 212 in Singapore last week, at which a representative of the Steering Team, the IFBA and several other interested parties from the international biosafety community also attended. A decision was taken to develop a preliminary work item proposal to put to the Committee as a resolution for formal adoption.
