Fellow scientists and safety professionals across the pond,
I work for the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (part of the UK Ministry of Defence). We are essentially the UK version of DoD’s Edgewood Chemical & Biological centre.
It doesn’t take much imagination to know that we work with quantities of high-hazard, acutely toxic materials, all of which fall under GHS Acute Toxicity Class 1.
My question is, how do I find a suitable UN approved container to transport 5g of an acutely toxic solid and 5g of an acutely toxic liquid from our synthesis laboratories to our analytical facility. We used to use bespoke containers, but these are no longer an option as we cannot demonstrate that they are fit for purpose. We would therefore like to source a commercial solution.
Grateful for any help,
Gareth R. Williams PhD
