About Biosafety Expert (EXPERT)

 23 Nov 2021 02:43

This common format is used by Governments to nominate biosafety experts for the roster of experts. The roster of biosafety experts was established by ExCOP-1 Decision EM-I/3 and aims to provide advice and other support, as appropriate and upon request, to developing country Parties and Parties with economies in transition, to conduct risk assessment, make informed decisions, develop national human resources and promote institutional strengthening, associated with the transboundary movements of LMOs.

Decision BS-IV/4 sets out the criteria and minimum requirements for experts to be nominated to the roster of experts (Annex I) as well as the guidelines for the roster of experts (Annex II). Please note that according to decision BS-IV/4, experts’ records are maintained on the roster for a period of four years from the last update of their information, after which they will be deleted from the roster unless re-nominated.

Please fill in the “Submission form” and complete the fields according to the instructions. 

Certain fields are mandatory and indicated with an asterisk (*). The “Review” of the form will highlight the mandatory fields that need to be filled before the record can be published. The record can be saved as a draft. Frequently saving your records is recommended, especially, in case of intermittent internet connections.
