Laboratory Registration Instructions

Who should fill out this application? Investigators planning to work with potentially biohazardous agents such as recombinant DNA or pathogenic organisms in a lab. A separate form is needed to register clinical studies involving human subjects. Download the form you want to use and save it to your computer.

Where do you send the filled in registration form? Your BioSafety officer can be found on the registration page.

Why is registration needed? Several reasons. Most importantly the University and affiliated hospitals wish to keep track of any potentially hazardous work. By centralizing this activity a consistent set of safety standards can be applied though out the university. In addition several government agencies require Biosafety Committee approval before work with potentially biohazardous agents begin. These agencies include the NIH, the FDA and the City of Boston. Finally many granting agencies insist on institutional certification before granting funds.

Why is this form needed? There are lots of ways you can explain your project to COMS. However, when you use our forms it is easier for the COMS staff to find the information they need and your application is approved quickly.
