The general use of risk containment procedures can provide a basis for preventing and limiting the consequences of accidents, enabling the risks to be dealt with in a coherent way. All over Europe, different strategies for analysing specific risk categories exist. The objective of this specific support action is to provide data for the harmonisation of safety assurance (risk containment - risk assessment) criteria, definitions and schemes and corresponding legal frameworks applicable to BSL3 and 4 laboratories in the various member states. To achieve this overall aim a pan European network of biosafety experts and a consortium website including an updateable inventory of biosafety relevant elements will be created. The cost-effectiveness of measures and methods designed to ensure the safety of the public and private research infrastructures will be assessed. The information will be compiled in a report. Together with national and international organizations in the field of biosafety a program for training and seminars will be established. Conclusions and recommendations which could be used for future policy making as well at the European level as well on the national level will be the outcome of this project.
