Carcinogen Safety and Use Registration

CGHS_Carcinogen_labelarcinogens are chemicals that cause cancer or tumor development, typically after repeated or chronic exposure. Carcinogens are classified by several organizations. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is the most respected voice internationally on the classification of cancer causing substances. In the United States, the National Toxicology Program is the organization considered most trusted source in this country on cancer. The most current NTP report on carcinogens can be found online at the National Toxicology Program website.

Listed Carcinogens

Listed Carcinogens are a small group of regulated chemicals used in research laboratories.  Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) has developed this UCR Listed Carcinogens Program in order to further facilitate research by providing guidelines that would assist in safety and compliance with applicable federal and state regulations.  This program covers all facilities on campus that handle or store Listed Carcinogens.  The flow chart below highlight the important elements necessary for the safe and legal used of Listed Carcinogens on campus.
