Environmental Health & Safety

Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is responsible for: reviewing activities which raise health and safety issues, reviewing the activities of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety as it pertains to biohazardous agents or materials including rDNA, assessing containment levels, establishing a medical surveillance plan for all appropriate personnel and reviewing any changes, challenges or grievances concerning research within the facility.

If the project involves Infectious Agents and/or Recombinant DNA, an original Document of Registration (PDF) form must be completed. A New DOR is required every three years or if experiments have changed. Within the same calendar year, it is not necessary to submit another DOR for the same protocol which has been approved. Simply include a copy of the previously approved DOR with your submission. 

The IBC meeting is open to anyone who wishes to attend. The meeting minutes are available upon request: safety@einstein.yu.edu
