6.2 Biohazardous substances; the World Health Organization (WHO) divides this class into two categories:
Category A: Infectious; and
Category B: Samples (virus cultures, pathology specimens, used intravenous needles).
In the absence of LC50 data on the poisonous (toxic) constituent substances, the mixture may be assigned a packing group and hazard zone based on simplified threshold toxicity tests. When these threshold tests are used, the most restrictive packing group and hazard zone must be determined and used for the transportation of the mixture. DOT infectious substance shipping labels comply with federal department of transportation regulations.
