Transport of specimens overseas

Hi all,

I've had a request to transport some mouse tissue samples overseas.
They are in 10% formalin and 2.5% Gluteraldehyde (in cacodylate buffer).
Apart from the infectious issue (which I am confident is minimal), what other packaging and notification requirements are there for these samples.

Thanks and have a good weekend.
