Description / Abstract:

This guide provides a general guide to transportation, including packaging and shipping, of possibly infectious materials, tissues, and fluids that have been removed from patients during revision surgery, at postmortem, or as part of animal studies, including packaging and shipping.

This guide does not address any materials, tissues, or fluids that may contain prions.

Individuals must be properly trained prior to shipping possibly infectious materials.

This guide is a compilation of national and international regulations and guidelines that apply to the packaging and shipment of possibly infectious materials.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Some specific hazards statements are given in Section 7 on Hazards.
