In 2018, UC Davis launched the ChemTag program to improve the efficiency of chemical inventory management through faster reconciliation of chemicals. This ensures that lab inventories are in compliance with the safety regulations and campus policies. The program utilizes the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and the Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) Chemicals application to easily locate chemicals and share chemicals within the campus community. RFID does not only speed up this process compared to using regular barcodes, but also improve the overall safety on campus as the accurate identities and location of chemicals are known.
