As you know, for the past four years UCLA has used an online chemical inventory platform, the Chemical Inventory System (CIS), which is operated by an outside vendor under contract with the University of California Office of the President (UCOP). UCOP Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) has worked hard to develop its own in-house inventory platform, UC Chemicals, which several laboratories on our campus have piloted over the past two years. UC Chemicals offers end-users a more friendly and intuitive interface, and increases the ability of each campus to meet its external regulatory reporting requirements.

UCOP has elected to convert all campuses from the CIS to UC Chemicals by the end of this current fiscal year. Between now and July 1, 2018, RSS will migrate UCLA’s inventory data into the new system. UCLA’s Office of Environment, Health & Safety will work with all effected users to ensure that this transition is as seamless as possible. The system will become our campus standard as of the new fiscal year on July 1, 2018.

UC Chemicals is open now for users to create accounts. If researchers have a current WASTe account, they can log in to UC Chemicals now.

Please inform your units that they can expect further direct communications from EH&S over the course of the next month. Any questions should be directed to [email protected].
