Select Agents

On June 12, 2002 the "Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness Response Act of 2002" was signed. This regulation requires that all persons possessing certain biological agents or toxins register with either the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the United States Department of Agriculture.

If anyone at the University of Delaware wishes to work with any select agent, they must first contact the Department of Environmental Health & Safety regarding registration requirements.

Questions regarding the regulation and its application at the University of Delaware should be directed to Krista Murray or call 831-1433.
