Biosafety Policy

Basic information

Calvin College committed to preserving the health and safety of its students, staff, and faculty, and to protecting the environment and the community. It is recognized that use of potentially pathogenic microorganisms and organisms containing recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules (r/sNA) is necessary in many university research and teaching laboratories. To ensure the safe handling of these organisms, the College requires compliance with the NIH Guidelines and with the recommendations in BMBL. Compliance with other applicable federal, state, and local regulations is also required.
