Sample submission and delivery

Please submit a Chain of custody (COC) with every batch of samples. The COC form requests essential contact information for the submitting and billing client, sample details, testing requirements and special instructions.

Please consider the potential hazards involved in handling your samples. Package and label hazards accordingly. For example, potential asbestos samples must be sealed in a thick plastic bag and then sealed again in a second clean plastic bag. Label the outside with: 'Warning: sample may contain asbestos'.

Samples can be delivered to EAL by courier, Australia Post or in person. Toll (131 531), TNT (131 150) and Fastway Couriers provide services to Lismore. Courier label to EAL (pdf) are available for printing.
