Georjean, Contact Kalpana Rengarajan, 404-727-8863 here at Emory. Many of us in Regi on 4 had the same finding during our Peer Audits. I don't believe our new guidelines and decision tree is posted yet. Patty Patty Olinger, RBP Director, Environmental, Health, and Safety Office Emory University 1762 Clifton Rd.

Does Baylor have commercial chemical activity? Are you working on chemicals that you hope may eventually be commercialized? If so, there is a minimum amount of review and documentation required to qualify for the R&D exemption for new chemical substances premanufacture notification. See EPA's site: http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/newchems/pubs/randdexemp.htm Requirements depend on who's doing what where.
