Consultation description

The main purpose of part 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Crime and Security Act 2001 is to ensure good security of dangerous substances that may be targeted or used by terrorists. The list of dangerous pathogens and toxins (biological agents) that fall within the scope of the act are contained within schedule 5.

A cross-government and academic group reviewed the list of pathogens and toxins within schedule 5 and recommended some changes. This consultation considers those recommendations.
