I've never heard of this, of course it could exist somewhere. I wonder
what would prompt this. There are obvious safety issues to consider.
Perhaps an unauthorized party, somewhere, got into some formalin and
Locked up or not, proper spill containment is mandated by OSHA (I
believe) so, again perhaps an unauthorized personnel issue?
I've worked in the Upper Midwest and Pacific Northwest and have not
heard of this. I regularly attend the NSH and have not heard anything
at the meetings either.

Subject: [Histonet] Locking up formalin
Is anyone aware of regulations stating that formalin has to be locked
up- put in locked cabinets when not under direct supervision?
Applying to either clinics where specimens are collected into formalin
containers or in the pathology lab?
