                                            Registration Document

The KSU Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) has university oversight responsibility for reviewing and
approving all activities that involve the use of recombinant DNA and / or infectious or tumorigenic materials.
Consequently, it is critical that the IBC receive sufficiently detailed information to fulfill its review and approval
mandate. This IBC Registration Document (RD) is the critical instrument for the IBC to accomplish that review
and approval responsibility. If you are performing rDNA or infectious / tumorigenic material activities that are
not detailed in an approved RD, you may be in violation of federal regulations and / or university policies.

Please type or print legibly. This form must be completed and submitted to the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)
/ University Research Compliance Office for approval prior to the initiation of research involving recombinant DNA
and/or infectious agents, as defined in the NIH and CDC Guidelines. FAILURE TO PROVIDE ALL

Registration Documents are approved for a period of 3 years. Continued activity past 3 years will require a new
Registration Document.

Multiple Agent Approval in One Registration Document: The inclusion of multiple agents in a single Registration
Document may hinder the IBC’s ability to adequately review proposed activities. In general, if your request includes
more than one Genus or type of agent, that would affect the risk profile, please consider submitting additional
registration documents to the IBC for those differing agents instead of an all inclusive request. If the IBC concludes that
the activities are indeed too different, and that the information requested is not sufficiently detailed for review purposes,
the committee may request additional RD’s to cover activities deemed too divergent to be described together. This
would result in a delay for approval of those activities.

NOTE: Links in this application are NOT active due to the document’s protection. To use links, you must unprotect
document. All information will be locked when you unprotect, so you will lose what you previously typed.

The NIH and CDC Guidelines and additional reference materials can be found on the URCO webpage. NIH Guidelines

Consult the flow chart located on the IBC page within URCO Online if you need assistance.

                                                                                            Last revised July 2010

If you are requesting a modification or a change to an IBC approved protocol, please provide a concise description of all of the changes that
you are proposing in the following block. This will greatly help the committee and facilitate the review.

II.        Non-Technical Synopsis (Please give a brief description (50-75 words) of the activity easily understood by nonscientists. Use
phrasing and words that would be easily understood by someone having no knowledge of your project. Avoid using abbreviations and

               The National Select Agents Registry Program (NSAR) (, a joint program of
               the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection
               Service (APHIS), oversees the activities of possession, use and transfer of biological agents and toxins
               that have the potential to pose a severe threat to public, animal or plant health, or to animal or plant
               products. The NSAR currently requires registration of facilities including government agencies,
               universities, research institutions, and commercial entities that possess, use or transfer biological agents
               and toxins.

               If you plan to use or are using any of the viruses, bacteria, fungi, rickettsial agents, or toxins on the select
               agent list, please contact the K-State Responsible Official for select agent use at the Biosecurity Research
               Institute (785-532-3248), or the URCO (785-532-3224) for information.

     “Each laboratory should develop or adopt a biosafety or operations manual that identifies the
     hazards that will be encountered, and that specifies practices and procedures designed to minimize
     or eliminate exposures to these hazards. Personnel should be advised of special hazards and
     should be required to read and follow the required practices and procedures. A scientist, trained
     and knowledgeable in appropriate laboratory techniques, safety procedures, and hazards associated
     with handling infectious agents or materials must be responsible for the conduct of work with any
     infectious agents or materials. This individual should consult with biosafety or other health and
     safety professionals with regard to risk assessment.” (BMBL, 5th Edition, Section III, Page 32,
     Laboratory Practice and Techniques).

Export Controls Training:
-The Provost has mandated that all KSU faculty/staff with a full-time appointment participate in the Export
Control Program.
-If you are not in our database as having completed the Export Control training, this proposal will not be
approved until your participation is verified.
-To complete the Export Control training, follow the instructions below:
Click on:

        1. After signing into K-State Online, you will be taken to the Export Control Homepage
        2. Read the directions and click on the video link to begin the program
        3. Make sure you enter your name / email when prompted so that participation is verified

        If you click on the link and are not taken to K-State Online, this means that you have already completed
        the Export Control training and have been removed from the roster. If this is the case, no further action
        is required.

-Can’t recall if you have completed this training? Contact the URCO at 785-532-3224 or and
we will be happy to look it up for you.

Post Approval Monitoring: The URCO has a Post-Approval Monitoring (PAM) program to
help assure that activities are performed in accordance with provisions or procedures approved
by the IBC. Accordingly, the URCO staff may arrange a PAM visit as appropriate; to assess
compliance with approved activities.

                                                                                    Last revised July 2010
