Category A Biological Materials

Because this is a shipment of a Category A regulated material;

You must fill out and submit an intent to ship form to EH&S because the shipment is either UN2814 Infectious Substances, affecting humans Or UN 2900 Infectious Substances, affecting animals.

EH&S is responsible for preparing compliant Category A shipments and will offer the shipment to the carrier.  No faculty, student, or staff member of Columbia University, regardless of training status, is certified by EH&S to ship Category A substances.
