Each laboratory is responsible for developing their own SOPs beyond what is described in this Chemical Hygiene Plan’s SOPs, as necessary. The process of developing laboratory-specific SOPs is intended to characterize various toxicological, regulatory and physical criteria or to identify conditions that might require additional control measures, as well as to aid in the identification of those control measures.

It is the responsibility of the Laboratory Supervisor/Principal Investigator (PIPrincipal Investigator View Boston University's policy on...) to review all materials and substances being used.  Upon such review, a determination and implementation of more stringent Site-Specific SOPs will need to be developed by the individual laboratory, as necessary. Contact Environmental Health and Safety (EHSEnvironmental Health & Safety) for assistance in generating laboratory-specific SOPs.
