APPENDIX E

COUNTRY AND REGION OVERVIEWS

Phase I of the project allowed National Academies staff to work with international partners to develop country and region overviews in advance of the Phase II international workshop. Staff engaged partners in countries that have developed BSL-3 and/or 4 laboratories and countries planning to construct BSL-3 and 4 labs. Staff asked all of the country study writers to describe a country’s facilities, capabilities, and regulations as well as past accidents, safety and security issues, and lessons learned.

Project staff collected nine country and region overviews during the project from authors writing about Brazil, the European Union (region), Pakistan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States. The country and regional overviews vary in the amount and type of information they provide. The overviews were used to inform the discussion at the workshop and the authors of the workshop summary. The final versions are appended below as they were provided to the National Academies.
