|Note regulated waste policy|
In order to ensure that "regulated waste" is disposed of properly, the Institutional Biosafety Committee requires that all members of the University community who generate "regulated waste" have in place a disposal plan which is in conformity with federal regulations. Regulated waste as defined by the federal government includes, but is not limited to, human body fluids and tissues, and items contaminated with human body fluids or tissues such as needles, syringes, and scalpels, whether generated during medical procedures, research or teaching. Anyone who is generating "regulated waste" within the University and does not have a disposal plan in place or is unsure of whether "regulated waste" is being generated by their activities or is being disposed of properly must contact the Safety Office.
