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, which are international standards. As cargo such goods are considered to be hazardous because of e.g. its flammable, oxidizing, corrosive, or poisonous properties. When shipping Dangerous Goods there are very strict rules concerning limitations, packaging, marking, labeling etc.

If you are in any doubt or believe that the shipment contains Dangerous Goods, please contact Jonas Rask Christensen (jc@chem.au.dk, Phone: 4021 3293) well in advance. “Well in advance” means at least 3 working days, preferably a week, 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) a list of iNANO persons are trained to approve shipments (please see below).
