Enhancing Responsible Science - Considerations for the Development and Dissemination of Codes of Conduct for Dual Use Research

National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB)

This report was undertaken in response to the United States Government’s request for advice on the development, utilization and promotion of codes of conduct for dual use research to interdisciplinary life scientists, and relevant professional groups. The Board’s recommendations address strategies to develop a code of conduct, the importance of strong institutional support for such endeavor, considerations for the dissemination of a code of conduct, and the need to assess the effectiveness of a code of conduct overtime. The report also provides two tools for developing a code of conduct: a toolkit that includes concrete steps in developing and disseminating a code of conduct for dual use research and an educational module on dual use research that may be used either alone or in conjunction with the toolkit.
