There are two chemical inventory requirements - the annual chemical inventory and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) inventory of "chemicals of interest."

Annual Chemical Inventory 

As part of the CU Hazard Communication Policy and Program, departments/laboratories should submit chemical inventories to the EHSO on an annual basis.  For chemical inventories, there are a few methods in which to achieve this requirement.

For All Laboratories:

For all Non-Lab CU Settings (offices, clinics, shops):

Electronic versions can be attached to an email to the EHSO. Hard copies should be submitted to the EHSO office.

DHS "Chemicals of Interest"

DHS has issued Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) for all facilities that manufacture, use, store or distribute certain chemicals on the chemicals of interest list that includes chemicals that present one or more security issues. In order to comply with the regulatory requirements, each chemical officer is responsible for reviewing the chemicals of interest list and reporting the possession of any of the chemicals on the list. Even though you may not possess any of the chemicals on the list, as a chemical officer, you are still responsible for completing the inventory. This inventory should be updated whenever there is a change in the inventory and reviewed at least annually for accuracy.
