The International Experts Group of Biosafety and Biosecurity Regulators (IEGBBR) launched its mobile application “IEGBBR Mobile App of Biosafety, Biosecurity and Dual Use Oversight”. Download the app on a mobile device from the Google Play or Apple App Store (or search for “IEGBBR”). The mobile app is free and available internationally in both English and French. Users can search and contrast desired aspects of the biosafety, biosecurity, or dual-use oversight for any or all of the 11 IEGBBR members (Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States).
The mobile app will serve as a reference tool for countries that aim to develop or strengthen their national biosafety, biosecurity or dual-use oversight. It can remove the necessity for extensive legwork prior to the development and implementation of oversight, and can be used to strengthen compliance with international biosafety and biosecurity commitments.
