Transport of Dangerous Goods

The transport or shipment of substances classified as potentially hazardous during transport (dangerous goods) is regulated under national and international regulations. Only staff with a certificate of training may consign dangerous goods for transportation.

For general dangerous goods for transport by road and sea, Mrs Jackie O'Connor, School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, (jackie.oconnor@qub.ac.uk, Ext 4673), can advise on the classification, packaging and labelling of goods.

For the transportation of infectious agents, patient specimens, dry ice etc. by air transport, contact an IATA qualified member of staff. (See the attached list).
