A colleague asked me if there were ever requirements for pressure release valves on lab waste collection containers particularly for very volatile liquids.


In absence of a pressure release valve, some wonder if one can simply “leave the lid off” which seems to be a problem from many perspectives.


If there are any best practices that can be sited or regulations, I would be interested.
