For what it is worth, we were once sited by CLIA for lack of adequate tracking documentation for sending blocks and slides outside of our facility. We sent them via regular first class US mail and the block was never received at the other facility. 

It is our understanding that there should be a written policy regarding how these will be send, i.e. FedEx with tracking numbers etc., and how to follow up to ensure that materials were received at the other facility and a mechanism to ensure materials are returned.
