Moving or Releasing Equipment or Labs

On this page:

In order to comply with applicable federal and state regulations, laboratories and equipment in which hazardous materials have been used must be decontaminated prior to vacating the space to make it ready for the next occupant.


Adherence to the following procedures will ensure that employees, students, service employees and members of the public are not needlessly exposed to potentially dangerous materials, and that all regulated materials are disposed of properly.


Certification forms are to be posted on a lab door or attached to equipment after appropriate decontamination indicates that the lab or equipment is free of any hazardous chemical, biological and radioactive materials and does not pose a hazard to human health or the environment when servicing or released to the general public.
