  • Delete an Inventory
  • If you’ve tested UC Chemicals (i.e. created a partial inventory) but don’t plan on uploading your complete inventory by September 17th, you will need to delete the inventory prior to the auto-migration.

    The PI or Inventory Manager must follow these steps to accomplish this:

    1. Login to https://ehs.ucop.edu/chemicals

    2. Click Inventory Summary

    3. To the right of ‘Inventory Overview’ will be three vertical dots – click these to bring up another menu

    4. Select Remove Containers By Location from the menu

    5. Click Remove Containers for the location with the containers you wish to bulk delete

    6. Enter the number of containers in that location as a confirmation step and click Confirm

    7. You should see the container count for that location change to zero

    8/ Repeat steps 5-6 for each location until no containers remain in the inventory

    9. Email chemicalinventory@ehs.ucla.edu with ‘[Name of inventory] ready for deletion’ in the subject line

    10. We will delete your inventory and send you a confirmation email when completed

    11. Keep using the CIS and wait for the auto-migration to UC Chemicals in September
