  • Added a “SAM Detail Report” on “SAM Summary Report” page.

  • Created a script for gathering all the acknowledgement files from the client’s SFTP, updating the claim number in the form, and sending notifications regarding “Updated Claim Number” and “Rejected Claim Number” results.

  • Added a LQ setting for labelling a “Full Inspection” template as active/inactive.
  • Added an “ID ram_id” column to the “Radioactive Isotope” table in the “RAD” tab under the “edit settings” page.

Radiation Module

A new setting that allows the radiation safety program to choose when radioactive material is removed from the authorized user’s permit. The default is after the waste container is removed from the lab through the waste pickup process. The new setting, when active, allows the radioactive material to be removed from the authorized user’s permit when the material is used and deposited into a waste container, even if the waste container is still in the lab’s possession.



  • When an inspector attempted to perform an inspection for a “Group” that had only “Assets” and not an assigned “Room,” that “Group” was not able to be seen in the dropdown to perform inspections. This has been updated.


  • “Incident signature reminder” notifications included links that failed to load/save the form provided. This has been updated.


  • Adjusted the bar code scanner so that it is now more responsive on different screens.
