Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)


Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Library

Summary

SOP templates and library for common chemical and physical hazards.

UCR SOP Templates can be found here

Instructions

Please use the SOP template below to write your laboratory-specific SOPs. All sections on the SOP template must be completed. Please refer to the corresponding Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) from the same manufacturer of the chemical to add important information on the SOPs per the manufacturer recommendations. All SOPs must be reviewed and signed by laboratory members. Alternatively, you can customize the following chemical-specific SOPs to match your laboratory chemical-specific operations. Do not cut and paste contents or certain sections from the SOPs without careful review, as the SOPs in the library must be customized for your specific laboratory operations. Note: The SOP library is not a comprehensive list of the chemical inventory of the campus, nor should it be implied that all of the chemicals included in the inventory are currently in use on campus. For more information, please feel free to visit other campus websites involving SOPs:  UCB, UCI, UCLA, UCR. In addition, you can view more templates through the UC Center for Laboratory Safety SOP Library.

Signatures

Although some templates contain one, please download (and attach) the SOP Signature Sheet. This acknowledgement page must be attached to the end of your SOP, and signed by the Principal Investigator / Supervisor and Laboratory Personnel.
