I was wondering if anyone could provide me with the regulations that specifically state that a chemical inventory is required rather than a should or best practice? How frequently must a chemical inventory be updated?

Does the International Building Code (IBC) or the International Fire Code (IFC) require a chemical inventory?

I am working on a presentation to justify the implementation of a electronic chemical inventory such as Chemtracker or ChemSW rather than an annually updated spreadsheet system.

I would appreciate your advice.
