DOT and IATA Infectious Substance and Dry Ice
Shipping Infectious Substances and Dry Ice can vary greatly from shipping other types of hazardous materials. DOT requires all hazmat employees be trained in general awareness, security awareness, and function-specific training (49 CFR 172.704). Air shippers must also comply with additional regulatory mandates provided in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. Fines for non-compliance are on the rise, it is critical that shippers of infectious substances are fully trained in the regulations.
