World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines provide practical guidance to facilitate compliance with applicable United Nations international regulations for the transport of infectious substances and patient specimens by all modes of transport, both nationally and internationally, as well as to stress the importance of developing a working relationship between those involved – the sender, the carrier and the receiver – in order to provide for safe and expeditious transport of these materials and to facilitate their timely arrival at destination.
IBMC, in partnership with WHO, offers a training course for all personnel involved in the transport of infectious substances and patient specimens with/without dry ice. The training is developed accordingly to the WHO training model (see the contents below).
