This online tool provides guidance for the notification requirements for occupational bio-incidents.


Bio-incidents are defined as all irregularities that occur while handling pathogenic or genetically modified (micro-)organisms,which may be able to provoke an infection, allergy or toxicity 

In addition, there is the opportunity to download a form to formalize the assessment of the biological consequences of the bio-incident and to make these insights available to the biosafety community as lessons learnt.
