Purchase Hazardous Goods

A Purchase Order is required for the procurement of any Hazardous Goods. Hazardous Goods can be either Hazardous Materials or Controlled Goods. Hazardous Materials are defined under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act and its Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) regulation. Controlled Goods are defined by the Controlled Goods Program (CGP) of Canada as outlined here. For more information please contact Strategic Procurement Services using the details below.


Two steps are required to purchase Hazardous Goods:

  1. Complete a Purchasing Requisition Form
  2. Submit the form to Health Safety and Employee Well-Being (HSEWB) – part of York’s Human Resources Department.

HSEWB will review the Purchasing Requisition Form and send it to Strategic Procurement Services.


Receive a copy of the Purchase Order from Strategic Procurement Services:

  1. If you receive a Blanket P.O. you will need to purchase the goods directly from the vendor yourself; or
  2. If you receive a General or Projects P.O. then Strategic Procurement Services will purchase the goods on your behalf and send you a confirmation.

More information about Purchase Orders can be found here.

Strategic Procurement Services will ask the vendor if they would like to be paid by direct deposit and support the vendor to complete an Application for Vendor Direct Deposit Banking Form.


Three steps are required after receipt of goods:

  1. Follow the “Receiving Instructions” section of the Purchase Order.
  2. For purchases from outside Canada / United States complete a Wire To Foreign Country Form.
  3. Send all forms to Accounts Payable (along with the invoice if it has been received)
