Dear Colleagues,

As you know, biological risk assessment forms the foundation of sustainable and impactful biosafety and biosecurity solutions. However, without adequate competency in the fundamentals of conducting a structured and systematic risk assessment, the process can be highly subjective leading to different interpretations and inconsistent outcomes. To address this, the IFBA’s Professional Certification in Biological Risk Assessment provides an objective evaluation of an individual’s competency in conducting structured biosafety and biosecurity risk assessments.

Please see attached for more details on the IFBA’s certification in biological risk assessment.

The IFBA is grateful for the support and collaboration provided by the US Biological Threat Reduction Program and Sandia National for this certification program.
