ChemTracker Website



The chemical inventory update is required on an annual basis where labs verify existing inventory and add new items or delete items that are no longer present from the online system. SOM Department -level contacts receive an email reminder about 45 days prior to the due date to allow sufficient time for labs to complete the process. The due dates are also posted on the Health and Safety Programs calendar.
