11.3 Dry Ice Shipping

Dry ice is included in the Miscellaneous Hazard Class 9 and as a result, any shipments with dry ice are regulated by DOT/IATA.  If the shipment also includes an infectious substance or diagnostic specimen, packing instructions for those agents must be followed and the Infectious Substances/Diagnostic Substances training completed.  DOT/IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations require that anyone using dry ice in shipments or anyone signing documentation for a dry ice shipment (e.g., FexEx Air Waybill) must have current shipping training.
