Who We Are

The International Federation of Biosafety Associations (IFBA) is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization of regional and national Biosafety Associations from all areas of the world. We are a global community of certified biorisk management professionals, biosafety officers, scientists, laboratory personnel, architects, engineers, academics and policy makers who have common interest in safe, secure and responsible work with biological materials.

Addressing this issue requires a global commitment and the leveraging of multiple stakeholders at the international, regional and local levels. As such, the IFBA and its Member Biosafety Associations collaborates with national animal and health authorities, with regional and international agencies and organizations (e.g. ASEAN, WHO, OIE, BWC, UN1540, Interpol, Stop TB Partnership, JEE Alliance, Chatham House) and with like-minded professional associations (e.g. International Federation of Biomedical Laboratory Science, African Society for Laboratory Medicine).

Members are picked randomly each month to ensure equitable representation.
