The TG316 provides a general methodology framework for assessing aerosolized microbial hazards and characterize risk as a result of environmental, occupational, or intentional exposures. The document outlines the considerations and steps necessary to complete a microbial risk assessment. It is designed to be used as a preplanning or post-event tool.
Several stand-alone TG 316 Supplements provide specific information and risk assessment tools, to include biological military exposure guidelines (BMEGs).
NOTE: The TG316 is planned to be retired and replaced with new technical guidance based on BMEGs. When available, updates will be provided here. Information about the revision process is available from the Risk Assessment Capabilities Branch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
