This course is for WHSC/local quarantine contacts along with researchers new to The University of Queensland and will provide an update on biosafety legislation requirements and how they apply to the research environment at UQ. The primary focus is on gene technology, infectious micro-organisms, and the new Biosecurity Act 2015 (which replaces the Quarantine 1908).

This course will enable participants to stay abreast of their legal obligations with respect to biosafety requirements (gene technology, infectious microorganisms, quarantine).
