Summary
On January 9, 2009, the White House issued Executive Order (EO) 13486 entitled "Strengthening Laboratory Biosecurity in the United States." This EO established a Working Group (WG) co-chaired by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, or their designees. Other members of the WG included designees of the Secretaries of State, Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security, the Directors of National Intelligence and the National Science Foundation, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Attorney General. EO 13486 states that the scope of WG activities pertains to the United States' policy which reads "facilities that possess biological select agents and toxins have appropriate security and personnel assurance practices to protect against theft, misuse, or diversion to unlawful activity of such agents and toxins." Encompassed therein are "Federal and non- Federal facilities that conduct research on, manage clinical or environmental laboratory operations involving, or handle, store or transport select agents and toxins."
