What Does It Mean to Be Certified?

Our experts at MLI Environmental explain what it means to offer certified hazardous material services:

What Does Certified Mean?

To understand what it means to be certified, we first need to know what the word certify means, which is “officially recognize (someone or something) as possessing certain qualifications or meeting certain standards.” The word certified means that someone or something has earned a certification in the desired field and in this case can certify a hazardous material or dangerous goods shipment. As certified hazardous materials shippers, we can assist companies in shipping hazardous materials and dangerous goods.

Can Anyone Be Certified?

The short answer to that question is yes, but there is more to it. You can take a training course and get certified in a variety of things, but does that make you competent? Having learning materials, hands-on training, and experience will benefit certified shippers in getting their hazmat and DG packages safely and successfully shipped. Hazardous material regulations are complicated though and come with high level of risk and liability. If you’re trying to ship a hazmat package to another state, country, or across the globe, consider the assistance of a certified company that successfully ships daily.

What Does MLI Need to Ship Your Package?

In just a short amount of time, an MLI employee can assist you to certify a shipment of a dangerous good or hazardous material. Here is some information we’ll need to get started:

  • Type of Hazardous Material
  • Size
  • Weight
  • Destination
  • Safety Data Sheet
  • Number of Containers

With that information, one of our certified shippers can assist you in getting a package shipped to its destination. We can either pack the material onsite or send you a package with everything you need to successfully ship your hazardous material and dangerous goods the first time.
