Purchase of chemicals, ABE

The following individuals have been appointed by the Head of School to make purchases of chemicals within the School of Architecture and the Built Environment.

Description of tasks linked to the purchase of chemicals

The purchase of chemicals shall primarily take place via established framework agreements. Whenever possible, in accordance with the Environmental Code, chemicals must be replaced with less hazardous chemicals. This takes place by the purchaser examining the candidate list, authorisation list and the restriction list. The purchaser must also make a risk assessment on any risks to the environment and/or health of the chemical.

  • In addition, the purchaser must ensure that authorisation exists prior to purchase or is applied for if required
  • That the chemical is not already available at the school
  • The requisite knowledge for handling is available

Once delivery has been received, chemicals must be registered in KLARA or other register according to KTH’s routine for registration and inventory of chemicals. After that, the purchaser must ensure that information on chemicals is available on safety data sheets.
