October update on the launch plans of the new BCH platform
I’m writing to provide a brief update on the migration plans for the Biosafety Clearing-House. We’re excited about the streamlined structure, view and functionalities on the new BCH site, and are eager to demonstrate the site’s latest capacities in the coming weeks.
We are currently in the midst of finalizing a new homepage to improve user navigation of the site, as well as a Knowledge Base that details how to use the many functions of the BCH. That being said, due to several technical circumstances, we’ve had to postpone our launch plans by a small margin. Our current plan is to launch the new BCH in the final week of November, and host the webinar the week that follows. As discussed in the previous update, users will not be able to add new records to the BCH in the weeks leading up to the launch.
As our launch is quickly approaching, we’ll be certain to promptly keep you informed of the latest developments. In the first week of November, I’ll communicate specific dates so you can update your calendars accordingly.
Please feel free to reach out should you have any specific questions or would like to discuss in greater detail.
