Biological, Chemical and Chemicals in Animals Registrations/Forms Review in 2018






The use of biological materials and chemicals in the laboratory or in animals require the review and approval of the Biosafety Office. Biological and Chemical Registrations, as well as, Chemicals in Animals Forms are maintained in BioRAFT. We are making efforts to synchronize the review of all modules to occur at around the same time each year. Thus, if you are prompted to review your Biological registration, please go ahead and review your Chemical registration and Chemicals in Animals Form/s (if applicable).
