Other requirements that apply to HIV and HBV research labs and production facilities

Other requirements that apply to HIV and HBV research labs and production facilities
  • HIV and HBV research labs and production facilities are subject to many safety requirements in addition to those elsewhere in the standard.

In addition to all the other requirements in 1910.1030, employers in research labs and production facilities that culture, produce, concentrate, experiment with, and manipulate human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) have even more requirements in paragraph (e) of the standard. These specific requirements are largely based on information from guidelines published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH).

A research laboratory means a laboratory that produces or uses research-laboratory-scale amounts of HIV or HBV, including for academic research. Research laboratories may produce high concentrations of HIV or HBV, but not in the volume found in production facilities. They deal with solutions containing higher viral titers than those normally found in patients' blood.

Laboratories that conduct research on blood and other body fluids unrelated to HIV or HBV, or that use unconcentrated blood or blood components as the source of HIV or HBV, are not considered research laboratories.

A production facility means a facility engaged in industrial-scale, large-volume, or high-concentration production of HIV or HBV.
