APHIS/CDC Form 2
Request to Transfer Select Agents and Toxins
The APHIS/CDC Form 2, Request to Transfer Select Agents and Toxins, is used by entities to request prior authorization of a transfer of select agent(s) or toxin(s) from the Federal Select Agent Program as required by regulations (7 CFR Part 331, 9 CFR Part 121, and 42 CFR Part 73). An importation or domestic movement permit (PPQ Form 526) for plant select agent pathogens is required under 7 CFR Part 330, in addition to an approved APHIS/CDC Form 2. However, importation and domestic movement permits are no longer required for public health or animal health select agent pathogens.
