Protocolo de envío de animales ponzoñosos

1 marzo, 2005

Hola quisiera saber si pueden enviarme un protocolo y forma de envío de animales ponzoñosos y garrapatas hacia un laboratorio. Aunque Uds. no lo hagan ¿puede ser que dispongan de la información?

Le transcribimos su inquietud a un amigo, Alejandro Méndez del ANLISS, que siempre colabora con nosotros y quién le aporta abundante material que espero le sea de utilidad. Lo saluda atentamente

El librito vale 100 dólares y lo tienen en español.
Live Animal Regulations (LAR)
How to transport animals safely so they arrive in good health?
Recognised as THE international standard for transport of animals by air, the IATA Live Animals Regulations (LAR) is an essential source on how to ship animals safely, sensitively and cost-effectively. It specifies the minimum requirements for the international transport of animals and wildlife, and indicates what precautions airlines, shippers, cargo agents and animal care professionals should take on the ground and in the air.

The LAR renders an IATA long-term commitment towards civil aviation safety requirements whilst considering animal welfare notions, scientific progress and commercial trade realities.

The LAR is produced annually in English, French and Spanish. For increased convenience and ease of use, the English version comes with a CD ROM, which includes a searchable PDF version of the manual , as well as fillable forms and useful web links.

How are the Animals Packaged?
With the exception of venomous animals, which won’t be covered here, styrofoam shipping containers offer the best protection for your animals. Usually, individual animals are placed in bags or deli containers. If the animals are small and fragile, add crumpled newspaper or paper towel to the bag. The containers are then put in a styrofoam box. In extreme temperatures, ice packs or hot packs are used. The newer types of hot packs utilize oxygen in the heat-generating reaction, so be careful to either punch air holes in the box or don’t overdo the hot packs. Additional newspaper is added to the styrofoam box to keep the inner containers from shifting too much. If large and small animals are shipped, be sure the large animals cannot crush the smaller ones. Most styrofoam boxes are available with outer cardboard boxes. This is then sealed, marked as "live reptiles", and labeled as to species and number of animals. If the animal is shipped air freight, a label also includes the markings "Hold at Airport" and the buyers name and phone number.

Esto lo saqué del Fish and Wildlife y me dió la písta de IATA que a su vez me mandó al CITES que tiene lo mismo que el IATA pero GRATIS.
Requirements, packing densities, materials requirements, venomous species shipping requirements, and other related issues.
In addition the Service has received numerous criticisms of the proposed rule from the commercial trade community involved in exporting hatchling farm raised turtles. The Service notes that this proposed rule does not affect the export of live reptiles and amphibians from the United States or their interstate (domestic) commerce.
Under the Lacey Act Amendments of 1981, the Service does not have the statutory authority to regulate humane and healthful transport of live reptiles and amphibians being exported from the United States. Therefore, the only humane and healthful transport rules applicable to the export of non-CITES reptiles and amphibians from the United States are the IATA Live Animals Regulations, which are enforced privately by participating airlines. Exports of live CITES-listed reptiles and amphibians are still required to be shipped in accordance with IATA packing requirements, but that requirement is independent, and not related to, this proposed rulemaking. This proposed rule applies only to live reptiles and amphibians being imported into the United States.
In order to provide the public with additional opportunities to communicate with the Service regarding these proposed regulations, and to provide an opportunity to clarify misunderstandings in the public sector regarding this proposed rule, including its content and the process of Federal rulemaking, the Service will reopen the comment period from January 17- February 17, and hold two public meetings during that time, one in New York, NY, and one in Los Angeles, CA, as discussed above (see DATES and ADDRESSES). These two cities were selected by the Service because of the high volume of live reptiles and amphibians which are imported into the United States through local Fish and Wildlife Service designated ports, and the corresponding concentration of affected members of the general public.
Interested members of the general public are encouraged to attend these meetings to communicate their opinions and pertinent factual information to the Service regarding the proposed regulations which can be utilized by the Service in preparation of a final rule.

Encontré las regulaciones Hazmat del DOT Deparment Of Transport, todos las citan pero ninguno te dice están aquí. Dentro de las regulaciones está la §173.134 Class 6, Division 6.2 que se ocupa de los biológicos.

Si es para determinación específica las garrapatas se deben transportar en alcohol 70% en agua en un vial tapa a rosca encintada adentro de una bolsita cerrada eso tiene que estar rodeado de material absorbente suficiente para que absorba toda la solución conservadora y adentro de otro envase rígido con tapa segura que puede ser a rosca y todo adentro de una caja cerrada con indicaciones del material que transporta y datos de envío.

Acá hay una entomóloga muestreando garrapatas con una pinza y el vial.

Esto es español y lo hicieron pensando en perros mordedores:
Artículo 10. Transporte de animales peligrosos.
