Compliance Returns

There are a number of Governmental regulations that apply to research and other work carried out at the University. Some of these require personal or institutional licenses or registration, and others require information to be submitted to the Government.

In order to ensure compliance with these regulations, the University requests information from the schools and research institutions twice a year, once in the summer and again in the winter.

You will be contacted by your Head of School, Division Head, Academic Safety Lead or your School Compliance and Risk Manager when these returns are due.

The Winter 2019 regulatory compliance returns are due before Friday 10th January 2020.These include:

  • Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) schedule 1,2 and 3 declarations. 
  • Precursor chemicals (drugs precursors) declarations.
