The Biosecurity Office is a national information centre for the government and for organisations that work with high-risk biological material. The office aims to disseminate the government's new policy on biosecurity; for example, by giving workshops and providing information.

The Biosecurity Office shares knowledge and information about biosecurity and increases awareness about biosecurity, in order to prevent the risk of misuse of high risk pathogens, knowledge and technologies. The Biosecurity Office increases biosecurity awareness in the Netherlands by organizing a Biosecurity Knowledge Day in the Netherlands annually, by giving lectures and workshops, by developing knowledge products and web applications, and by joining international biosecurity initiatives.

For all questions regarding biosecurity issues, you can contact the Biosecurity Office: biosecurity@rivm.nl.
