Chemical shipments must be prepared by the Research Safety staff. Research Safety will package, mark, and label each container and certify that each container is in compliance with applicable regulations.
In order to ship a chemical, please complete a Hazardous Materials Shipping Request in NSIS. Research Safety will contact you with instructions for purchasing or obtaining appropriate packaging for your shipment.
After you have obtained packaging, contact Research Safety to schedule a time to complete the shipment.
- Research Safety staff will schedule time to package, mark and label the shipment.
