Wisconsin Laboratory Agrees to Pay $30,000 for Allegedly Violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law Involving Select Agent Regulations

On December 9, 2022, a Wisconsin laboratory agreed to pay $30,000 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 a registered laboratory space to two individuals who lacked a current security risk assessment approval. OIG contends this conduct subjects the laboratory to civil money penalties under the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act, 42 U.S.C. 262a(i), and 42 C.F.R. 1003.102(b)(16).
