  • The application made by the principal specifies all the locations where IDA/TSDA will be used and the purpose to which it will be put at those locations; and
  • Each site where IDA/TSDA is used is responsible for the security of product, maintaining records of stock and product usage.
  • The principal has overall responsibility for ensuring that the organisation has a clear audit trail for all denatured alcohol used.
