    EBSA Thursday - How ISO standards and technical specifications can support you in your daily life as BSO (and how you can support ISO with your technical knowledge as BSO)

    ISO35001:2019 Biorisk management for laboratories and related organizations is the well-known ISO management system standard supporting you in organizing biosafety and biosecurity in your organization and helping you to address all biorisk management issues that need to be addressed in a concerted manner. It builds on the continuous improvement plan- do-check-act-cycle to keep your biosrisk management system up to date and under control. ISO35001 was designed by biosafety experts like you form different countries around the globe, being a truly international standard, within the context of the International Standardization Organization, ISO, Technical Committee TC212, Clinical laboratory testing and in vitro diagnostic test systems

    Pre conference course C. Recombinant virus and viral vectors for research, gene therapy and vaccination: “GMO or not? Safe or not? Manageable or not?


    There are a variety of investigational human and veterinary medicinal products consisting of or containing GMOs. GMOs for human medicines may include the following: human cells modified ex vivo; vaccines; recombinant virus-based vectors, including those containing genome editing nucleic acid sequences (which may also be delivered non-virally) and bacterial vectors.Medicinal products based onmRNA are on the rise. One need to define which constructs are still GMOs or not, which constructs are less or more hazardous than the wildtype virus, they are derived from, and which might serve as agent to harm others. How are people and the environment protected when they are widely used, also outside controlled laboratory settings. There is guidance and regulation. Which ones to apply is the one hundred Euroquestions.

  12. 2023-animals.png
    18 April 2023

    Pre conference course E. The world of infection - working with infected animal models


    Working with an animal model of infection means introducing an additional risk into the infection chain.  

    Not only the animals need to be handled appropriately to reduce a potential risk to the scientist, the equipment also plays a major role in minimising risk during individual infection experiments. 

    Infection models with obligate pathogenic human germs must be treated carefully and calmly. The 3Rs of laboratory animal science are not only a guarantee for ethically sound experiments, but also serve the safety of the researchers. 

    This course is rated as advanced. Therefore basic knowledge of Biosafety is a prerequisite as well as initial knowledge in working with animals.

    18 April 2023

    Pre conference course D. The gift of failure – learning from accidents, incidents and near-misses


    Sadly, accidents will always happen. They can be prevented, but only if we take care to understand how and why they happen. Their impact can be reduced, but only if we take time to prepare. Gaining that understanding and having a plan are key safety processes.

    18 April 2023

    Pre conference course A. The holy grail in biosafety: risk assessment


    Even though national and international regulations provide a framework on how to work safely with a certain pathogen or hazard, specific risk assessments are indispensable to identify appropriate safety measures to ensure that the risk associated with working with biological agents is on an acceptable level. This course will set out the principles of a risk assessment process, addressing the definition of key steps, risk evaluation and identification of high-risk laboratory procedures or selection of risk control measures.

    To shape the attitude of non-experts towards the risks of infectious disease, it is not sufficient to just ‘tell the facts’. The way the information is presented and the source credibility of the organisation are crucially importan. Unfortunately, in many cases the importance of these factors is underestimated. What can (governmental) organisations do to effectively shape the perception?

    New Genomic Techniques – safely managing innovation in times of legal uncertainty

    The third of 5 online, member only, meetings in 2021

    In 2008 the European GMO competent authorities established a working group to determine if organisms modified by new techniques would be subject of the GMO legislation. Ten years later, after a bumpy procedural road, the European Court of Justice indicated that organisms obtained by mutagenesis are GMOs and that only those obtained by conventional mutagenesis techniques are exempted from the GMO legislation. This legal interpretation triggered a fierce debate with all parties agreeing that the definitions included the 90’ies GMO legislation were outdated.

    EBSA Thursday - WHO LBM4 – Biorisk management beyond risk groups and biosafety levels

    The WHO Laboratory Biosafety Manual (LBM) serves as a de facto global standard that presents best practices and sets trends in biosafety. The recent publication of the fourth edition expands the thorough, evidence-based and transparent assessment of the risks, allowing safety measures to be balanced with the actual risk of working with biological agents on a case-by-case basis. 

    A challenging shift from routines based on levels? An opportunity to allow optimizing risk management, in particular in less resourced envrionments? Join us and discuss with two of the LBM4 contributors, active EBSA members, providing their insights on the (r)evolution this version marks and how biosafety professionals can use it in their daily practice.

    Symposium on emergency preparedness and response

    Organized by the Belgian Biosafety Professionals (BBP) and the Dutch Association for Biosafety Officers (BVFp)

    Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands

    Working with hazardous biological material or providing the necessary support to have people working safely with the hazardous material is our day-to-day job. For that, we are experienced in assessing the risk of contained use activities, to train our coworkers and to watch over a culture of biosafety.

    BBP workshop "The biocide legislation and its impact on contained laboratories, greenhouses and animal facilities"

    Geo-Instituut 200E, Celestijnenlaan 200e – Heverlee (Leuven)

    Are you finding your way in the biocide legislation? Or are you struggling, as many colleagues, with questions like:

    • Can I still use particular products (e.g. Virkon®) and, if so, for how long?
    • If not, what are suitable alternative products?
    • Do we need to change our decontamination procedures?  
    • What are the consequences of the biocide legislation on my organization?

    We hope to offer clarity during the BBP workshop
