Is an automated system that contains:
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) as of June 1, 2015
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

The DODI 6050.05 provides instruction for the United States (U.S.) Government and civil agencies to maintain product hazard information on hazardous materials that are procured and to maintain the documents indefinitely. Currently, there are more than 500,000 records in HMIRS.
Accounts are handled via the DLA Account Management and Provisioning System (AMPS). Other methods of applications will no longer be accepted. Follow these steps to obtain access. For more information about AMPS, FAQs and assistance, visit the AMPS information page.
Open the AMPS application. A Personal Identity Verification certificate is required for access.
Read the "AMPS User Guide" document and apply for an AMPS account. This document in the User Guides and Job Aids will guide you through the process in obtaining an AMPS account. If you already have an AMPS account, please proceed to step 3.
Read the "Complete and Submit a Role Request" document and apply for a role. This document will guide you through the process in requesting a role. For Step 10 of the AMPS User Role Request, enter the application name and select Search.
Selecting the Correct Account. The 'HMIRS Web PROD Non-Proprietary 001' is the role you should request unless you have been directed to request another. If you select a role that you are not authorized, your requested will be denied.
Per DLA policy, All inactive accounts over 30 days old are automatically disabled. All inactive accounts over 45 days old are automatically deleted.
Note: User registrations and user role requests will need to be approved by your Supervisor and Security Officer. At any time, you may open AMPS to view your HMIRS registration status. At every approval stage you will be sent an email notification. Please keep in mind that each stage has up to 20 days to approve, and if not approved within 20 days they are automatically dropped from the system and the user must start all over. You can accelerate your request by communicating with your Supervisor and Security Officer to be expecting your request. This process is external to DLA, and we have no control over it. Once your request is approved, it will be evaluated by the data owner. At that time, you will get an email stating that your account is provisioned. Shortly after, you will receive a welcome email with the required information to access HMIRS NextGen.
