UCLA’s Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) works with Environment, Health & Safety to maintain a set of standardized Biosafety SOPs available to campus research labs. As a part of the 2018 annual review process the IBC approved the following changes to three of these SOPs. If you are currently using the standard Biosafety SOPs, no action by your laboratory is required.

The IBC has also approved a new SOP covering disposal of Non-Hazardous Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Waste. If you have any questions or concerns about these changes please contact
