Chemical Inventory Update: Fairchild Science Building

Updates for the Fairchild Science Building (07-520) are due by March 15, 2010.

Stanford policy requires labs to:
- add chemicals that are not currently in the inventory system
- delete items that are no longer in the lab and no longer in use
- adjust quantities of inventory items if ongoing changes have been made
- include all compressed gas cylinders and bleach (both often overlooked)

All chemical inventories need to be updated ONLINE using Chemtracker v1. Upon request, EH&S can provide current inventory summaries for your overall review. Contact Debbie Amoroso ( for printouts, questions on accessing the system or for a username/password.

The Chemical Inventory Update is an annual process where labs review and update information in the ChemTracker database; the University uses this information as part of the Hazardous Materials Management Plan (HMMP) submitted to regulatory and response agencies.
