In order to stay compliant with the laws and rules of shipping we have two forms that need to be filled out depending on what you are shipping. These forms must be filled out completely and legibly. They must be brought to the Chemistry Storeroom with the item to be shipped.
The sample shipment declaration form will need to be filled out when shipping a non hazardous sample to a collaborator or to a company for elemental analysis. To use this method of shipping the sample can not be listed as dangerous goods by the government. The official listing of dangerous goods is "CFR 49 section 172.101". This can be found online but make sure you are on the official government website or we have a hard copy in the storeroom office.
The chemical shipping request form must also be filled out completely and legibly. This type of shipping has many regulations and rules that must be followed. Failure to follow shipping regulations can result in federal fines and penalties. It may take a number of days to find the correct shipping procedure, and correct packing material. Please plan ahead and be patient.
