Bio-risk management in laboratories handling live FMD virus

Overview report

Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) audits to EU laboratories authorised to handle foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) virus showed that their bio-risk management systems were generally sufficient to prevent escape or release of FMD virus from the primary containment area, but they uncovered major deficiencies in air handling and in the management of fluid and solid waste.

The audits indicated that FMD laboratories should remain vigilant and continuously review and improve their bio-risk management systems
