Laboratory Registration System
New Laboratory Registration Policy
To ensure compliance with new DHS regulations and other Federal, State and SUNY requirements pertaining to the storage and use of hazardous materials, all laboratories must be registered with Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S).
This registration will identify laboratory spaces, responsible Principal Investigators (PI) / Laboratory Managers, emergency contacts, and hazardous materials and/or hazardous operations in laboratories. The information will be used to ensure regulatory compliance, facilitate and improve emergency response times, assist with future reporting requirements and approval for grant applications, and assure the safety of students, faculty, staff, visitors and emergency responders.
Individuals responsible for laboratories must register their labs by November 30, 2008, using a web-based system developed for this purpose. Please note that this registration requirement does not apply to computer labs, mechanical rooms, storerooms, chaseways, and shops.
