Exporting dangerous goods

There are strict controls around the export of dangerous goods.

You need to check that what you're exporting or importing isn't restricted, banned or sanctioned.

If you export dangerous goods you must fill in a Dangerous Goods Declaration Note.

There are also rules around packaging, handling and shipping dangerous goods. Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (DGSA) can advise you on the safest way on packaging and shipping the goods.
