Physical measures

Are all biological agents stored in sealed and secure locations? This falls under responsible conduct.
Is access to the storage locations being checked? The organisation has a record of which personnel have access to which locations.
Is the entrance to the storage location secured by a combination of at least two methods? These methods may consist of: Something you have (key), something you know (PIN code), something you are (biometrics)
Are these locations under guard and can all storage points be locked? Access routes to locations that contain high-risk materials are being monitored, and these locations are not accessible to the public.
