Certificate of Environmental Compliance (CEC) for DoD Applications

US Army Medical Research Material Command Grant Applications

Certificate of Environmental Compliance- Procedure for RWJMS Faculty

As part of its granting process, the U.S. Army Medical Research Materiel Command (MRMC) requires that the Safety Office sign a “Certificate of Environmental Compliance (CEC)" certifying that hazards described in the proposal have been identified, eliminated, and/or controlled in such a manner to provide for a safe research laboratory environment. EOHSS will email the lab a signed certificate in pdf format after ensuring that any outstanding safety deficiencies have been corrected and that personnel are up-to-date with training.

The Principal Investigator must also sign and submit an Assurance statement to MRMC that he/she shall adhere to the institutional safety and occupational health program policies and procedures, and a statement that the Principal Investigator is responsible and liable for all aspects of safety and occupational health specific to research protocol.

A checklist must be completed and faxed to EOHSS at (732) 235-5270 or emailed to Tracey Pfromm at pfrommtr@umdnj.edu to initiate the process.
