Laboratory Registration

Welcome to the Laboratory Registration System!

As required by the University  Laboratory Safety and  Registration of Laboratories policies, Principal Investigators are required to register their laboratories with the Department of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S). The  Laboratory Registration System will allow EH&S and Principal Investigators to benefit jointly in many ways, including: 

  • Help PI's conduct a Hazard Assessment of potential hazards specific to their laboratory space, including biological, chemical, radiological, and other hazards.
  • Identify training requirements based on hazards identified during the registration.
  • Provide training history for all laboratory personnel.
  • Facilitate the reporting of chemical and biological inventory information required by federal regulations, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Biological Select Agents and Toxins (BSAT) requirements. (Note: Radiological inventories managed by the EH&S Radiation Protection Services (RPS) group are also available on the system.)
  • Provide emergency responders with critical information about laboratory hazards and operations.

The EH&S Department is also working to add new features to this system as the system expands.

A few things about the Laboratory Registration System:

The registration is based on a Principal Investigator. It will include personnel, laboratory spaces, and hazardous materials within those spaces.

What you will need to complete this registration:

Prior to logging in and registering your laboratories, you should have the following information on hand to complete the registration quickly and as accurately as possible:

  • Room numbers for all labs and lab spaces that you use


  • Names and SBU ID #s for all laboratory personnel


  • Knowledge of the types of hazards and hazardous materials (biological, chemical, radioactive, physical) within the lab.
  • An updated inventory of all Select Agents, Toxins, and any other biological materials that you work with



Delegating this task to your lab manager/supervisor:

If you are going to assign the registration process to someone in your lab, you need to contact and provide the name of that person so that we may grant them access to register for you. You will be notified when they are cleared to register your spaces.

What spaces need to be registered?

All Laboratories, as defined in the  Registration of Laboratories policy, need to be registered. This can include any spaces where hazardous materials are stored and/or used, including art studios.

The following laboratory spaces don’t need to be registered:
  • Computer Labs
  • Storerooms
  • Chase-ways
  • Mechanical Rooms
  • Shops used to support operations

Please contact us at with any questions regarding registering your group.
