Classification of Organisms: Pathogenicity classification of bacteria. Status: September 2017


The Netherlands Commission on Genetic Modification (COGEM) advises the Dutch government (amongst others) on the classification in risk groups (classes) of organisms according to the risk they pose to human health and the environment. These classifications are written in Dutch and are therefore only published on the Dutch part of the COGEM website.

In order to inform other countries and/or organisations about the classification of organisms by COGEM, the most recent classification list of bacteria has been published on the English part of the website.
