Relationship to Facilities Manual and Campus Standards

The function of the LSDM is to serve as a tool of common use for design professionals and EH&S subject matter specialists that facilitates collaboration and shared understanding of the safety and health aspects of environmentally sustainable lab facilities and their compliance with pertaining codes and funding agency requirements. It is not intended to be a replacement for or to overrule the UC Facilities Manual or individual Campus Standards.  It has been developed to comply with the UC Facilities Manual and may serve to inform the development of Campus Standards, as it has done in the past.
