Chapter 11 - Hazardous Material Shipping

The transport of hazardous materials is regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Civil Aviation Organization. An additional regulatory body formed by the airlines is called the International Air Transport Association (IATA); however, their regulations are only enforceable by the airlines. All University transportation (including shipping) of hazardous materials off University owned property is subject to DOT enforcement.

 EHS provides the following hazardous material shipping compliance services:

  • Compliance training
  • Maintenance of training records​
  • University DOT certification program
  • General compliance assistance
  • Oversight of shipping stations (where untrained/uncertified individuals may have a hazardous material shipped for them)
