"Our certification is backed by hard data recorded and analyzed by biosafety experts."

World BioHazTec is uniquely equipped to help clients through the certification process. Our approach is to work with the biosafety officers and facility engineers to remediate any facility deficiencies and to provide quality improvements and suggestions.
The Deliverables
The Certification Assessment Report is not just a checklist. The checklist is only the foundation of a certification.
Our report includes:
  • Detailed risk assessment
  • Graphical depictions of the laboratory's airflow
  • Layout of laboratory
  • Certification checklist
  • Verification of calibration of facility's differential pressure meters (DPMs)
  • Graphs of differential pressure readings
  • Pictures indicating design issues
  • Quality improvement recommendations
  • Certificates of equipment used to collect data
  • Certificates of Compliance
What If My Laboratory Does Not Pass?
As a team member, we will try to make any effort we can while onsite to troubleshoot issues so that your laboratory passes the certification. However, if modifications to the laboratory are required, WBHT will provide a Report of Issues that will address areas of non-conformance. To have the laboratory pass, WBHT will review proof that corrective action has been taken (i.e. documentation). If HVAC/emergency power re-testing is required, WBHT will need to return to the facility to conduct the retesting.
