As part of the new Biosecurity course (BIOL3106) there will be a series of guest seminars in Semester 2 given by representatives from various government authorities and other relevant biosecurity organisations providing an overview of their role in and perspective of biosecurity in Australia.
The first seminar will cover Security Sensitive Biological Agents (SSBAs).
Do you know what they are, what legislative restrictions and regulations are in place and why, and what your obligations are if you come across an SSBA in the course of your work? You are welcome to come along and find out.
Speakers: Ms Sandra Gebbie, Director and Ms Marguerite Saw, Assistant Director, SSBA Regulatory Scheme, Office of Health Protection, Department of Health and Ageing
