Shipping Biological Materials (IATA) Course

Thu 2 Jul 2020


Important notice: All IATA expiry dates from the 1 March 2020 onward are currently extended to the 1 November 2020 (and may be extended again if necessary), so all the existing qualifications remain valid. Our IATA training provider does not have an on-line version of this training available - it will be re-scheduled when possible.

This is a one-day specialised CAA approved training course aimed at those departments shipping biological materials by air (IATA). It will use the 2020 IATA Regulations and will cover the full classification, packaging, labelling and documentation required to ship the following goods:

  • Infectious Substances (Category A)
  • Biological substances (Category B) (e.g. samples, vaccines, bloods, etc)
  • Exempted goods – (e.g. cell lines, DNA)
  • Genetically Modified Organisms

It will also cover the requirements for the supplementary materials encountered, such as dry-ice, dry-shippers and samples that are in small amounts of potentially flammable, or toxic, preservative fluids.

Successful candidates will receive a training certificate valid for two years, restricted only to the materials described above.

For completeness, transport by road and rail etc will also be covered.

Target audience
  • University staff
  • Further details regarding OHSS’ eligibility criteria are available
