Moroccan Biosafety Association (MOBSA/AMABIOS)

The Moroccan Biosafety Association (MOBSA/AMABIOS) was created in October 2009 by a group of scientists concerned with disseminating information about the spectrum of Biological Risks and the impact on public health, animals, agriculture, plants and the environment. Most of national stakeholders misunderstand dual use implications of advances of modern biotechnology and life sciences research. Attentive to the risks arising from laboratory and industrial activities, transport and release to the environment of dangerous wastes and other activities involving the health and agricultural sectors, target issues of MOBSA, {the} association aims at defining Biosafety as a multidisciplinary scientific field.

At a wider level, MOBSA was also founded to promote biosafety as a scientific discipline to be taught at the National Universities and serve the growing needs of biosafety and Biosecurity professionals in the Kingdom of Morocco and at the MENA Region level. It will seek to advise and support the government on the implementation of new legislation and standards in areas related to biological safety and biosecurity, on the implementation of the BTWC recommendations, on biotechnology and associated activities.
