What is transfer and who is a transferor?

Transfer is the conveyance or movement from a point of origination to a point of destination either:

  • from one or territory to another
  • or entirely within one contiguous state or territory

Intrafacility transfers within a registered facility located at a single geographic site are not covered by the provisions of the CDC select agent standard, section 72.6(d), (e) and (f) provide that:

  • the intended use of the agent remains consistent with that specified in the most current transfer
  • for each intrafacility transfer, the facility maintains records that include the name and location of the recipient; the amount of agent transferred, and the date transferred. Such records must be maintained for a period of five years after the date of transfer or for 5 years after the agents are consumed or properly disposed, whichever is longer.

Transferor is any person who transfers or seeks to transfer through any means a select agent to this part to any other person.
