Online Dry Ice Shipping Training
Stay Compliant with DOT and IATA Regulations
Dry ice (the solid form of carbon dioxide) is regulated as a hazardous material by the Department of Transportation (DOT) when offered for transport by air, such as via FedEx Express and international shipments. Offering improperly prepared dry ice shipments could result in a rejected shipment, potentially ruining time-sensitive materials and possibly in fines imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration. This technical session walks attendees through the steps necessary to properly prepare dry ice shipments according to the DOT and International Air Transport Association (IATA) requirements, as well as FedEx and UPS variations.
Employees involved in the shipping of dry ice must, at a minimum, have DOT Hazardous Material General Awareness Training and be trained in the applicable requirements of the DOT and IATA regulations specific to the preparation of dry ice.
