  • Short term storage and shipping conditions are specified by method.
  • Use adequate and appropriate packing to protect samples during shipment.
  • For International shipments: 

            o Use a carrier with import/export authority and tracking systems (DHL or FedEx) 

            o List samples as “air samples for analysis only” on all shipping documents, avoiding the use of API or chemical names 

            o Limit the declared value of samples to a minimum “of no commercial value, assigned $xx USD for customs purposes” 

            o Ship as “non-hazardous; not subject to TSCA, DEA, FDA or USDA control or restriction”
