The responsible manager

The responsible manager is the facility’s overall director or CEO. In practice, the CEO of a larger organisation will often delegate his or her biosecurity responsibilities to a relevant manager. In accordance with Danish law, the responsible manager is responsible for ensuring that the company complies with the Danish biosecurity legislation - including the appointment of a biosecurity officer. The responsible manager is held responsible if the facility violate the biosecurity law. Licences from CBB for facilities that possess and work with controlled material are always issued to the facility’s responsible manager.
