ABSTRACT

EA for the Proposed Construction and Operation of a Biosafety Level 3 Facility at LLNL: Appendix A: CDC Guidance and Information on Microorganisms   [open pdf - 970KB]

"The information in this appendix is taken from a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) document which establishes the criteria for each Biosafety Level (BSL) of operation. This document, 'Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories' (CDC 1999), also known as the BMBL, presents the CDC and NIH recommendations and describes the combinations of standard and special microbiological practices, safety equipment, and facilities for Biosafety Level 1-4 laboratories. The BMBL 'guidelines are now accepted as the international 'gold standard' for safely conducting microbiological research.' (BMBL Dedication, CDC 1999)"
