The Biosecurity Code of Conduct is accompanied by an explanatory memorandum and a background review which were also submitted to the working group and the focus group for comment. The presentation of the code of conduct completes this phase of the biosecurity project. The knaw is currently holding talks with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science on a follow-up project. During this second phase the knaw will organise debates, workshops and other activities to publicise the code of conduct and promote awareness of the topic of biosecurity. This process is essential for promoting adherence to the code of conduct by scientists.
