Request Approval for Chemical Orders

  • If you are purchasing a replacement chemical and have already submitted an SOP you may provide the previous approval number in lieu of resubmitting an SOP. If you have never submitted an SOP for your chemical you will need to attach an SOP. If an SOP and/or prior approval number are not submitted the request will default in the system and not be sent for review.
  • EHS will review the chemical order and send an email with your approval or a request for more information within the next four (4) business hours. Approval numbers as well as shipping information will be included in this email. Shipping information is also available below: Ship To: (Name of PI/Dept) c/o Environmental Health and Safety #approval number The University of Alabama 410 Campus Drive E Room 1029 Tuscaloosa, AL 35401
