Environmental Health and Safety

Select Agents

Federal laws that became final in early March 2005 mandate specific security measures for all laboratories possessing, transferring or receiving Select Agents (PDF, selectagents.gov). Environmental Health and Safety provides the university oversight (Responsible Official) required by these federal laws and regulations.

Transfers, sending or receiving of any select agent (internal or external) is prohibited without EHS approval.

If you possess or intend to possess any Select Agents, contact the Responsible Official 512-471-3511 for specific requirements.
