In order to ensure a safe, compliant and consistent approach to dangerous goods shipping – and to minimize the time, training and record-keeping burden on Georgia Tech researchers, EHS provides a centralized Dangerous Goods Shipping Program for hazardous chemicals and biological materials (shipping and receiving radioactive materials is handled by the EHS Office of Radiological Safety). Very strict federal regulations dictate that only certified individuals may ship hazardous materials. The penalties for non-compliance in this area may include fines and criminal charges.
