The European Committee for Standardisation is Working on the CWA for Biosafety Professionals
The European Committee for Standardisation (Comité Européen de Normalisation - CEN) is currently conducting a workshop on the topic of biosafety professional competence (CEN/WS 53). The aim is to produce a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), which will define the tasks, qualification and knowledge of a biosafety professional. BIO Deutschland has taken a position on the draft of the CWA, which was discussed in Frankfurt on 27 and 28 May. In legal terms, the CWA is subject to European and national norms (regulations, laws and bylaws). Therefore, it is only binding for those who agree to its use.
