The UC Irvine online hazardous chemicals, biological and
radioactive materials tracking system.
CiBR-Trac is a repository of information relating to hazardous chemicals, biological and
radioactive materials at UC Irvine locations (e.g., campus and affiliated research centers). This online system
supports UC Irvine's efforts to maintain compliance with federal, state, and local regulations for reporting.
CiBR-Trac allows authorized users to view, track and update their chemical, biological, or radiological inventories.
hazardous materials inventories:

Minimum Software Requirements
The program is accessible using Netscape version 7.0 or higher,
Internet Explorer version 5.1 or higher on Linux or Unix, Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
on the PC, Safari Ver 1.2 or higher on the Macintosh, or Mozilla version 1.2 or higher.
According to federal, State and local law, UC Irvine must maintain
an inventory of existing hazardous materials at campus locations (labs,
maintenance facilities, research stations, etc.). The Environmental, Health
& Safety (EH&S) Chemical Hygiene Officer coordinates the campus
chemical inventory program. Persons in charge of labs and chemical storage
locations must annually assess and affirm the accuracy of their chemical inventories.
In addition, inventories must be updated if there is a significant
change such as a relocation of material to a new room or a significant change in
inventory (e.g., acquisition of new hazardous chemicals or a greater than 10% change
in your original inventory amounts).
Standard operating procedures (SOPs) must be developed for work involving the
use of hazardous chemicals. Through CiBR-Trac, EH&S provides a system for
managing SOPs through hazard control banding and provides SOP templates for each
of the hazard control bands as well as a large number of specific chemicals to help
develop SOPs that meet regulatory requirements. Completed SOPs may be electronically
uploaded to CiBR-Trac to facilitate sharing among laboratory members and submission to
EH&S for review.
An approved Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) study application is required if your research involves any potentially
hazardous biological agents including but not limited to infectious agents, human and non human primate materials
(including established cell lines), CDC select agents, recombinant DNA, transgenic plants or animals and studies
involving human gene transfer.
According to Federal and State regulations, UC Irvine must maintain
an inventory of radioactive materials. The Environmental, Health &
Safety (EH&S) Radiation Safety Officer coordinates the radioisotope
inventory program. Principal Investigators with an active RUA must maintain
an inventory of their radioactive materials. Inventories must be updated
at least every six months.
