We would like to share the availability of several helpful biosecurity tools and resources from the Biosecurity Office, RVIM, Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and Environment.
The Self-Scan Toolkit and Vulnerability Scan are 2 web applications that are useful for organizations to identify biosecurity strengths, weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Please refer to the attached articles for a further description and both applications can accessed at the following link:
Also here is an article “Development of a Biosecurity Checklist for Laboratory Assessment and Monitoring” (Click here to download) which was developed by Dutch and Malaysian experts to assist organizations in assessing their biosecurity capacity.
Many thanks to Sabrina Brizee, Biosecurity Office, RVIM, Netherlands for providing these tools and resources to our member biosafety associations.
