The transport of infectious and biological material is regulated by a number of international organizations.
This mini-review has been compiled to increase awareness within the scientific community of problems caused by differences in terminology (such as infectious materials. substances, biological products, diagnostic specimens, genetically modified microorganisms) and certain technical aspects of the main international guidelines, and to assist policy makers in the creation of harmonized guidelines.
A list of relevant Internet resources has been compiled.
Unfortunately there are several international organizations involved, with differing spheres of influence, which use different names for the same materials.
Certain new recommendations and legislative proposals by some of these organizations are seen by some physicians. scientists and manufacturers of biological agents materials as restrictive and not in the interest of health and economic growth.
This mini-review has been compiled to increase awareness within the scientific community of differences in terminology and certain technical aspects between the main international guidelines, and to assist policy makers in the creation of harmonized guidelines. (...)
