Online Training Events in Accordance with § 28 para. 3 GenTSV to Obtain Expertise for Project Leaders and Biosafety Officers (Basic Course and Refresher Course)

Online Training Events in Accordance with § 28 para. 3 GenTSV to Obtain Expertise for Project Leaders and Biosafety Officers (Basic Course and Refresher Course)

In future, pursuant to the amended Genetic Engineering Safety Ordinance (GenTSV), project leaders and biosafety officers (BBS) must update their professional expertise every five years by attending a refresher course.

Since the actual practice of the implementation of this 5-year period differs in the individual federal states, we recommend that you clarify with your respective responsible state authorities when exactly you will have to attend a refresher course for the first time.

For the Max Planck Institutes on Campus Martinsried, according to the state authorities, renewed participation in an officially recognized continuing training event is required until 28 February 2026 at the latest.

Due to this amendment of the GenTSV, we are organizing 2 MPG-internal training events in accordance with § 28 GenTSV at the MPI of Biochemistry:

REFRESHER COURSE  pursuant to GenTSV for project leaders and biosafety officers (BBS) to renew their expertise.

The next one-day online Refresher Course will take place in mid-2023. The exact date will be announced here on this page from around mid of February 2023.


BASIC COURSE pursuant to GenTSV for obtaining the certificate of competence for project leaders and biosafety officers (BBS).

The next two-day online Basic Course will take place at the end of November/beginning of December 2023. The exact date will be announced here on this page from around end of February 2023.
