The American Biological Safety Association (ABSA) was founded in 1984 to promote biosafety as a scientific discipline and serve the growing needs of biosafety professionals throughout the world. The Association's goals are to provide a professional association that represents the interests and needs of practitioners of biological safety, and to provide a forum for the continued and timely exchange of biosafety information.
On this official website of the American Biological Safety Association, you can find information about the ABSA Annual Conference, ABSA Review Course, Principles and Practices of Biosafety Course and other educational offerings. There is also extensive information about ABSA's two credentials, the Certified Biological Safety Professional (CBSP) credential, and the Registered Biosafety Professional (RBP) credential. The site also contains important biosafety publications such as the Anthology of Biosafety series and Applied Biosafety: Journal of the American Biological Safety Association. If you are interested in becoming an ABSA member, please see ABSA's membership information and membership application. There is also other important biosafety information on this site including: the Risk Group database, Biosafety Links, Biosafety Listserv, White Papers, Job Opportunities, and more. Please e-mail email@example.com if you have any questions or would like additional information.
