Utah Laboratory Settles Case Involving Select Agent Regulations
On August 15, 2017, a Utah laboratory agreed to pay $250,000 to resolve its liability for violating the select agent regulations. OIG alleged that the laboratory violated the select agent regulations by allowing access to select agents or toxins maintained in registered laboratory space to an individual who lacked a security risk assessment approval, and who was later identified as a restricted person. OIG contends this conduct subjects the laboratory to civil money penalties under the Bioterrorism Preparedness Act, 42 U.S.C. 262a(i) and 42 C.F.R. 1003.102(b)(16).
