Why not simply classify all medical specimens as Category A, to avoid underclassifying shipments?

The packaging and documentation requirements for Category A Infectious Substance Affecting Humans are much more detailed and stringent than the requirements for Category B Biological Substances.

The certified containers that are used to transport Category A specimens are more expensive as well. Category B Biological Substances can be safely transported when packaged in compliance with IATA Packing Instruction 650.
