Laboratory Inspections

Laboratory inspections are required for recombinant DNA experiments that are regulated by the NIH guidelines. ORS will inspect newly registered laboratories working at biosafety level 2 (BSL2) as part of its normal laboratory inspection functions. Inspection and certification of newly registered laboratories by the IBC are required for recombinant DNA experiments performed at biosafety level 3 (BSL3). The IBC inspection team is comprised of two members of the IBC and a representative of ORS. BSL3 laboratories are inspected annually by the IBC.

Information on spill procedures is available.
