What's required to ship biological materials to another facility?

Anyone offering a package containing any type of dangerous goods for shipment must be trained on proper classification, packaging, marking, labeling, and documentation.  If you plan to make frequent (i.e., at least once a month) shipments, EHSS can provide material-specific training.  If you plan to make infrequent shipments, it is easier if EHSS oversees the shipment.
