Abstract Criticism of negligent handling of hazardous substances by universities, mainly chemistry departments, in the Federal Republic of Germany is rebutted. All universities are trying to comply with the Ordinance concerning Hazardous Substances, effective since 1 Oct. 1986 (see CIS 88-1769). Requirements of the ordinance concerning storage, handling and disposal of hazardous substances that are easy to comply with by the universities, and those that require expenditures beyond their means, are outlined.
