Subject: Institutional Policies-Storage Life of Corrosive Gases

It appears lots of educational institutions have been removing their 
Chemical Hygiene Plans from common-access on the internet, so--

What is your institution's policy for how long a corrosive compressed gas 
cylinder can be onsite?  

(Yes, I agree one should follow the mfg guidelines but they don't always 
specify and their tech service people are typically not able to address 

You can reply to me offline if that is your (or your general counsel's!) 
preference and I will post the replies but scrub the affiliations.

Many thanks!
