Biological Materials Inventory and Registration
To fulfill the requirements of Carnegie Mellon University’s Safety Plan for the Use of Biological Materials and Associated Devices as well as Federal Regulations, all researchers who use or possess biological materials must submit an accurate and up to date biological materials inventory to EH&S.
Carnegie Mellon University requires that all work involving biological materials classified as Biological Safety Level 2 (BSL-2) or higher be registered with the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). The Principal Investigator (PI) is responsible for completing this registration document which will then be reviewed by the IBC and, on approval, will be valid for a period of two (2) years. The PI is also responsible for notifying the Biological Safety Officer (BSO) when any changes are anticipated.
For information regarding BSL determination and the principles of biosafety please visit the Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL) website.
If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Lawson, BSO at (412) 268-8405 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: This form is to be used for research that DOES NOT involve recombinant DNA molecules. To register research involving recombinant DNA, please visit the IBC website.
Please use the Biological Materials Registration Form, found in the box on your right, to register your materials.
