Dartmouth Compliance Matrix

Complex organizations such as Dartmouth comply with a multitude of policies, laws, and regulations.  Risk and Internal Controls has developed a compliance matrix to guide the Dartmouth community in identifying key compliance areas, the Dartmouth staff responsible for various aspects of compliance oversight, and where to go to learn more about each compliance area.

Shipping of Biological Materials

Shipment of biological materials is regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) if sent internationally.  Anyone involved in packaging materials, preparing samples for shipping, handling such packages, preparing related paperwork, or signing to authorize shipments must undergo specific shipping training and maintain records of this training.  EHS offers DOT classroom training every two years.  The next training for shipping biological materials will be offered in Spring 2015.  Before shipping hazardous materials, please review Dartmouth's Hazardous Materials Shipping Policy.
 
If you need assistance in shipping biological materials or if you would like to sign up for the training, please email EHS or call (603) 646-1762.
 
Please refer to the Shipping Biological Materials Guide for more detailed information.
Use the Classification Flow Chart below as a quick reference.
