"On July 2, 2010, President Obama signed Executive Order 13546 'Optimizing the Security of Biological Select Agents and Toxins,' which created and tasked the Federal Experts Security Advisory Panel (FESAP) to address policy issues relevant to the security of biological select agents and toxins (BSAT). [...] In general, the FESAP concludes that the U.S. Government has developed a robust set of rules, regulations, and practices to inform safe, secure and responsible work and research with infectious agents and toxins that produce illness, death, and economic impact to the United States and cause global concerns. However, there are several improvements that may further mitigate the inherent risks in such work. A summary of the FESAP's recommended actions to address the FESAP's September 2014 charge follows."
