Chemical Safety Review Committee

The Chemical Safety Review Committee (CSRC) is a standing committee responsible for reviewing and approving research protocols, submitted by GU Principal Investigators, that involve the use of particularly hazardous chemicals and those of unknown toxicity.  EH&S provides administrative support to the CSRC, and technical support for principal investigators, in the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The mission of the CSRC is to ensure that all activities involving Particularly Hazardous Substances/Chemicals and the facilities used to conduct such work are in compliance with all external regulations and applicable University policies.

CSR Meetings

CSR meetings will tentatively be held during the second Friday of every month. Meetings will be
canceled when there are no new applications submitted by the first of each month.

Note: Meeting dates are subject to committee member availability. Please see CSR meeting schedule for official and tentative dates.
