*The SMFL has a large number of chemicals available for use in the facility. There may be times when a chemical needed for a project is not stocked in the SMFL.
*Before any chemical can be brought in, it '''must''' be signed off by the SMFL. This applies to all users whether they are internal or external.
*The http://smfl.microe.rit.edu/forms/imported_chemicals.pdf SMFL Imported Chemical Worksheet needs to be filled out and submitted with the MSDS before the chemicals can be brought into the lab.

==NFPA Hazard Diamond==
