Federal law requires that Penn's Responsible Official notify the CDC or APHIS in advance of the destruction of Select Agent organisms or toxins. This notification must be coordinated through EHRS. 

Complete the "Notification of the Proposed Destruction of Select Agents" form when proposing to destroy Select Agent organisms and/or toxins. Send the completed form to Dr. Andrew Maksymowych at least seven (7) working days in advance of the proposed destruction date. EHRS will notify the CDC or APHIS of the proposed destruction. Once the proposed destruction is approved, EHRS will notify the PI or lab manager. Call EHRS at 215-898-4453 if you have any questions.
