Biotechnology is now applied to the production of a wide range of chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural and food products. Increasingly, there has been a need for the biotechnological processes themselves, not just the products, to be regulated and for possible hazards to be identified. This book provides a practical approach to the industrial and international regulatory aspects of biosafety in biotechnology. Chapters cover relevant national (and international) legal requirements, policy-making bodies and regulatory agencies, providing practical guidelines to industry on how to comply with the regulations. Industrial aspects covered include a review of potential health hazards, effluent management and equipment monitoring procedures. This book is an essential source of practical advice and reference for industrial biotechnologists, particularly those with responsibility for safety, ecotoxicologists, health inspectors and chemical engineers. This book should be of interest to production managers, quality managers, safety managers and biological safety officers in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies; process equipment designers, fabricators and users; and researchers and lecturers in biochemical engineering, biotechnology process design and development, industrial hygiene and occupational health departments in universities and technical colleges.
