Purchase of controlled drugs and highly hazardous chemicals


A small proportion of laboratory reagents require a license to purchase (Controlled Drugs) or will have to be tracked within the University once they delivered (Radiochemicals, Restricted Biologicals)

Therefore those making a request to purchase a laboratory reagent must identify whether the compound is a Controlled Drug, Veterinary Medicine, Radiochemical, Restricted Biological or a highly hazardous chemical. In addition, when a chemical is purchased, the person requesting the purchase must identify the hazard associated with the chemical (i.e. provide the UN Hazard Class for each chemical).
