Category A Packages - Shipper's Declaration For Dangerous Goods

A "shipper's declaration for dangerous goods" form must be filled out for category A packages, but is NOT required for category B or exempt packages.

The shipper's declaration must be handed to the courier picking up the package; do not place it inside the box.

Fed Ex requires that the Dangerous Goods Declaration forms be filled out using compliance checking software. Either FedEx Ship Manager Software or another FedEx approved software may be used.

If dry ice is included in a package containing a category A substance, it should also be listed on the shipper's declaration for dangerous goods. However, it is NOT necessary to fill out this form if dry ice is included in category B or exempt packaging; details about the dry ice are included instead on the air waybill.
