Dangerous goods and dry ice campus procedures

August 10, 2009

Re:       Processing Time for Dangerous Goods and Dry Ice Shipments

To whom it may concern:

Governments, International Air/Ground Traffic Associations and respective Courier companies for years have been working together to establish and maintain effective rules and regulations involving the movement of dangerous goods both in the air and on the ground. In doing so, the documentation required to properly inject these items into the shipping environment has become more detailed and labour intensive.

Central Stores/University of Waterloo Shipping has always been involved in this process and our Shipping area is well equipped to meet these processing requirements.  However the increased number of Dangerous Goods and Dry ice shipments, being presented on a weekly basis and the documentation requirements, has made it necessary for the following procedures, to be followed.

  1. Starting Monday August 17th, 2009 Dangerous Goods and Dry Ice Shipments will only be processed Monday to Friday mornings, when received at Central Stores, ECH before 11:30 a.m.  Goods received after 11:30 a.m. will be processed the following day. Note that the Shipping office is closed Saturday and Sundays.

Our Central Stores Shipping staff are available at ext. 46621, if you require further information.
