The IBC Policies and Procedures for the Use of Biohazardous Materials (IBC Policies) outlines the processes that must be followed when obtaining, using, storing, transferring, or destroying biohazardous materials, and provides a review of the relevant regulatory requirements. Since laboratory work can involve exposure not only to biohazardous materials, but also to chemical and radiological hazards, these policies should be used in conjunction with any pertinent University manuals (e.g., the Investigators' Manual for Laboratory Safety, the Users' Manual for Radioactive Materials).
