ANSI/ASSE Z9.11 – 2016 (Laboratory Decommissioning) provides comprehensive guidance. I have not read the updated standard, but it is based on decommissioning guidelines developed at the National Institutes of Health. Good luck!

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Repurposing a chemical laboratory to a food safe laboratory


Hello all,


We have a highly desirable class at our college Kitchen Chemistry.  Currently we run the class in a classroom and bring in the equipment on carts everyday.  We have an unused old chemical laboratory that we hope to renovate at some time.  Does anyone have any resources or can point me in the correct direction as to what we need to do to make this old chemical laboratory safe for food use.
