How can I safely ship hazardous materials?

All shipments of hazardous materials are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).   Virginia Tech personnel who package, label, ship, prepare shipping documents, or offer packages of hazardous materials to carriers for shipment, are required to receive and complete appropriate training and comply with all federal, international and local regulations.

Contact Chris Wakley (biologicals) at 231-3361 or Frank Imperatore (chemical/radiological) at 231-2982 for assistance with shipping hazardous materials.
