Mobile Equipment Reservation Policy

The following is the basic policy surrounding equipment reservation for eligible lab members. A full and up to date version of this policy will be printed on your reservation contract upon equipment pickup.

  • Equipment from the lab is only to be reserved for academic and non-commercial use.

  • All equipment reserved from the lab under a researchers name is the responsibility of that researcher until it returns to the lab and cannot be transferred in the field.

  • Only lab members and/or Concordia University students are permitted to use equipment reserved from the lab.

  • Once equipment is picked up, the researcher who holds the reservation is responsible for safe transportation and storage of the equipment until it is returned to the lab at equipment drop off.

  • If equipment is damaged, destroyed or lost in the field, the researcher who reserved the equipment will be financially liable for the full cost of replacement of the equipment in question.
