Large Item Purchases - Please talk with Facilities Before Ordering

BEFORE ordering anything of size or weight, such as laser tables, freezers, large lab equipment, please email BSOE facilities at:

This is to help ensure the equipment can be allowed into the building, that it will fit into elevators, through door ways and that infrastructure needed for it (e.g. power, water, gas, air) will be in place. Please note that research groups are generally responsible for lab alterations (including conversion of power outlets to 208V). If the item is too heavy, too big or simply not allowed by the Fire Marshall, you will be fully responsible for the return.

BEWARE: Shipments of Hazardous Materials (where you are the shipper) - Federal Civil and Crimial Penalities if done incorrectly

Caution: If shipping hazardous materials, include anything with lithium batteries, dry ice, biological samples or other hazardous materials, you must have EH&S prepare the shipment.  This is to ensure accordance with United States Department of Transportation Requirements and other legal requirements. Failure to do this may result in a large fines and criminal penalities. 

As of 5/20/14, UC has a new online training module for anyone who may be involved in Hazardous Material Shipments.  
This training can be found at UC Learning Certer as "Hazardous Materials Shipping (General Awareness)" 
ecourse code;  UCLOL0003-UC-ECO.

Caution: Do not have Hazardous Materials shipped to locations at UCSC and then expect be able to transport the material elsewhere. UCSC does not have licensing and equipment for Hazardous Material Transport. If you need chemicals and other supplies that are hazardous, please have them shipped directly to your location.

If off-site and shipping back to UCSC, you need to have an approved US Department of Transportation Hazmat Shipper do the packing and shipping. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the shipper to ensure all DOT and FAA requirements are met. Failure to meet all requirements, including documentation could result in the package being destroyed and heavy fines to UCSC which may pass the fines to you.

Hazardous shipments require special packing, handling and documentation for truck and air freight shipments. Failure to follow proper protocols has resulted in vehicle and aircraft damage, crashes and deaths. Thus DOT and the FAA monitor and regulate shipping very closely and will heavily fine organizations that do not adhere strictly to shipping requirements of hazardous materials. Contact UCSC EH&S well in advance should you need to ship any hazardous materials.
