CHEMICAL LABEL POLICY

New Chemicals which are brought into the clean room requires staff approval. Please send the chemical Safety Data Sheet (can be found on EH&S website) to the staff with a short description of your process. 

All chemicals left in the clean room must be labeled clearly with your name, group, chemical name, and date.

All containers must be self-standing.

Any chemicals found not meeting this criteria will be disposed of without warning.
