A number of regulatory requirements apply to the procurement and use and disposal of hazardous chemicals, biological & radioactive materials, select agents, hazardous wastes, and the import/export of certain materials and technology. Before beginning any new research involving humans, animals, plants, recombinant DNA or biohazards, institutional approval by one or more university committees may be required. Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), Office of Responsible Research Practices (ORRP), and Office of Research Compliance (ORC) provide programs and services to help you meet requirements associated with your research.
