Shipping Hazardous Materials
Beginning April 1, the Penn State Multimedia & Print Center will no longer be authorized to ship hazardous materials, which include laboratory chemicals, radioactive materials, compressed gases, and biological agents. All shipments containing hazardous materials will need to be processed through the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS).

Departments that need to ship hazardous materials will need to contact EHS (814-865-6391) at least one day prior to the intended ship date. EHS will document and prepare the materials for shipment and will ensure that all shipments comply with federal and international shipping regulations. Departments will not be charged for EHS services, but they will still be responsible for paying the freight and mailing charges associated with their shipments.

For more information, visit the EHS website.
