Dangerous & Restricted Items
Are you posting safely?
Regulations for the transport of restricted items have come in to effect and apply to everyone handling parcels sent internationally. Restricted items transport regulations are enforced by the Civil Aviation Authority (air), Maritime and Coastguard Agency (sea) and Health and Safety Executive (road and rail).
To comply with transport legislation, and ensure that mail in transport does not present a danger to the general public, certain items have now been restricted or prohibited from the postal network.
Under the transport legislation, many everyday items, such as aerosols, nail varnish and perfumes are considered restricted items.
To ensure the mail is safe for everyone, we have implemented additional controls to ensure that prohibited goods do not enter our international networks.
Failure to comply with these controls could result in prosecution.
You are responsible for checking whether or not an item is prohibited or restricted. If you send prohibited goods or restricted goods such as lithium batteries connected to equipment (and you do not comply with the relevant restrictions), Jersey Post may deal with the goods as we see fit including destroying or disposing of the relevant items.
