Dry ice is commonly used by the medical, pharmaceutical, and food industries to keep perishable goods frozen during shipment. The substance poses a variety of health and safety threats, including explosion and suffocation. With enforcement on the rise, thorough knowledge of the regulations is essential to avoid penalties for non-compliance that can be as high as $100,000 per day, per incident.
Dry ice transported by ground must be shipped in compliance with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations; while air shipments must be in compliance with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations.
