 Many universities have introduced relational database management systems (RDBMS) for chemicals to unify the management of chemical reagents in laboratories. The RDBMS is based on a client-server model. However, issues such as introduction, operation, maintenance, management, and operational issues of the RDBMS for chemicals in each university have not been clarified.
 In this study, the survey by a questionnaire was performed about the operation management situation of the chemical management system in each university which was mainly concerned with national university corporation. We clarified the staff organization, staff assignment, and management state of RDBMS for chemicals in universities. In particular, we showed that management policy of the number of chemical reagents master data, the frequency of updates,management state varied among universities.
