IP Grams

The CDC Import Permit Program (IPP) inspects entities using standardized checklists to verify that facilities have implemented the appropriate biosafety measures for the infectious biological agent, infectious substance, or vector to be imported.

IPP has updated its inspection checklists to reflect the changes in the recently published 6th edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL). The updated inspection checklists are available for reference on the IPP website.
