GUIDELINES FOR SHIPPING OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Items Exempt from, Infectious Substances Shipping Regulations
Substances which do not contain infectious substances or which are unlikely to cause diseases in humans or animals.
Substances containing micro-organisms, which are non-pathogenic to humans or animals.
Substances in a form that any present pathogens have been neutralized or inactivated in such a way that they are no longer a health risk to humans or animals.
Environmental samples (including food and water samples), which are not considered to pose a significant risk of infection to humans or animals.
Dried blood spots, collected by applying a drop of blood onto absorbent material, or fecal occult blood screening tests and blood or blood components which have been collected for the purposes of transfusion or for the preparation of blood products to be used for transfusion of transplantation and any tissues or organs intended for use in transplantation.
Non-infectious biological material from humans, animals, or plants. Examples include non-infectious cells, tissue cultures, blood or plasma from individual not suspected of having an infectious disease, DNA, RNA, or other genetic elements.
Patient specimens for which there is minimal likelihood that pathogens are present if the specimen is packaged in a manner that will prevent any leakage and that is marked, “Exempt human specimen” or “Exempt animal Specimen.” Consult IATA/DOT regulations concerning packaging specifications. Examples of specimens which meet this criteria include blood or urine tests to monitor cholesterol levels, blood glucose levels, hormone levels, prostate specific antigens; test required to monitor organ function (ex. Heart, liver, or kidney) for humans or animals with non-infectious diseases or therapeutic drug monitoring; blood tests to determine the presence of drugs or alcohol for insurance or employment purposes; pregnancy tests; biopsies to detect cancer; and antibody detection in humans or animal.
A biological product, experimental or investigational , subject to federal approval, permit, review or licensing requirements such as those required by the Food and Drug Administration or the US Department of Agriculture.
