Shipment of hazardous research materials is regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and its branch, The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  FAA requires that anyone who ships hazardous materials, including dry ice, be trained properly to pack, mark, and manifest hazardous materials in a way that is compliant with the regulations.
