How to Ship Hazardous Material

Only trained and IATA certified personnel are permitted to package and ship the regulated materials covered by the federal mandates.  Contact the Environmental Compliance Manager at 5-5122 for assistance.  If you have materials that meet these mandates, EH&S will coordinate the packaging and shipping.  At least 72 hours notice to prepare packages and shipping papers is required. Overseas shipping request can be more complicated and time consuming. For a list of what material is covered by this federal mandate as well as information on the shipping of hazardous materials, visit the hazardous materials resource page.
