Re: Promulgation of UCLA Policy 906: Undergraduate Researcher Laboratory Safety

Dear Colleagues:

The formal review process for UCLA Policy 906: Undergraduate Researcher Laboratory Safety has been completed in accordance with UCLA Policy 100. Your comments and suggestions regarding the interim policy helped shape the final policy, which has been published and is available on the Administrative Policies & Procedures website.

UCLA Policy 906 outlines the safety requirements necessary for and prohibitions on some research activities and other activities for undergraduate student researchers that involve highly hazardous materials. The safety requirements outlined in this policy pertain to all research and teaching laboratory environments.

If you have any questions regarding the policy, please email them to
