Instructions for shipping materials from APS

Please note, that shipping from ANL/APS is major source of problems for users. Any and all shipping sent through ANL systems is
considered shipping by ANL and has to conform to all and any applicable laws, regulations, and DOE rules. The fact something was
accepted for shippment by carriers to ANL is inconsequential for shipping back to your home facility. Also note, that users cannot be "shippers"
and only ANL staff can be responsible for shipping from ANL. This creates problems, where shipiment accepted by staff for shipping
to users were later refused by shipping department and returned to ANL staff for repackaging and paperwork update.
This caused problems and delays and in some cases we were unable to ship materials back to users at all. Users are therefore urged
to dispose of samples as waste (which is easier) or arrange alternate shipping plans if safe and technically possible.

For users who insist on shipping materials back, here are short instructions. Following these instructions gives your samples reasonable chance
of being shipped back to you. Please note, that these instructions seem minimum requirements! Not adhering carefully to even these minimum
requirements practically guarrantees that your samples will not be shipped.

Shipping of materials OUT of APS is now handled for the USAXS users by Ben Reinhart. Users must fill the this form package materials properly
(Shipping WILL open the package, so do NOT tape over) and contact Ben ahead to organize transfer of the package to Ben.
