Shipping guidelines

Before you prepare a shipment

Make sure that it does not contain Dangerous Goods

Dangerous goods are substances, materials and, articles that are covered by the ADR/RID/IMDG/IATA restrictions. It is cargo that is considered to be hazardous because of e.g. its flammable, corrosive, or poisonous properties. When shipping Dangerous Goods there are very strict rules concerning limitations, packaging, marking, labeling etc. and who can approve the package (you need formal training).

If you are in any doubt or believe that the shipment contains Dangerous Goods, please contact Morten Foss (foss@inano.au.dk) well in advance. “Well in advance” means at least 3 working days before shipment.

Notice that e.g. Dry Ice (UN1845), Biological substance Cat. B (UN3373) and Lithium ion Batteries (UN3480) are also considered Dangerous Goods.

You may consider whether you can use ice packs as alternative to dry ice. Ice packs are not considered Dangerous Goods.

In case you only ship dry ice (UN1845) and Biological substance, Cat. B (UN3373) the persons below are trained to approve shipments:

In case of shipments where other Dangerous Goods are involved, please contact Morten Foss (foss@inano.au.dk)

It should be noted that when shipping Dangerous Goods, the penalty for non-compliance with the training/rules may be in the order of 40,000 EUR.
