IATA (ICAO) Shipping by Air

Summary

The International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR) is the most trusted source to help you prepare and document dangerous good shipments in commerce by air. It is the most complete, up-to-date, and user-friendly reference in the industry. Air carriers go through the acceptance process prior to transporting by utilizing the acceptance checklist designed by IATA.

IATA DGR was developed in partnership with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and in coordination with local governments around the world. They are commonly referred to as the go-to regulations for the safe transport of dangerous goods by air. In many cases, IATA poses more stringent requirements than ICAO, providing detailed requirements for every step of the shipping process.

According to the DGR, certain substances and articles can be severely restricted or forbidden from air transport altogether, depending on how great a threat they can pose to an aircraft, the crew and passengers onboard. Any that are allowed for shipping by air must be classified, identified, packaged, marked, labeled and documented as well as segregated prior to transport under highly specific guidelines. All this is required because it is necessary for the safety of everyone involved in the shipping process, and anyone involved in this process is required to undergo training in accordance with Federal and International regulations.

Hazmat University provides both Initial and Recurrent online training courses based on the most current IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations regarding the proper classification, identification, packing, marking, labeling and documentation of dangerous goods to be shipped internationally by aircraft. Anyone who joins these programs can achieve successful completion of training and certification by employer.

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure their employees are trained commensurate with their responsibilities and that they may need additional training.

Courses

International Air Training - Initial

Federal and International government regulations require that anyone defined as a hazmat employee involved in the handling of dangerous goods must undergo training prior to embarking on the role of being a hazmat employee. This means that employers must provide each of their hazmat employees with training, regardless of the size of the company, and that even those who are self-employed need to receive training in order to comply with these regulations to avoid risk of being involved in an incident related to a shipment of dangerous goods and penalties as a result of non-compliance.   Hazmat employees whose function requires training must receive instructions that are specific to their job function and the responsibilities that come with it. They must also undergo general awareness training to understand the transportation process as a whole, as well as security awareness training that prepares them to recognize an insider or outsider threat that is prohibited and that will interfere with the compliance process and jeopardize the safety of the transportation system.   This course provides required initial dangerous goods training to participants involved with shipping, receiving, handling, and storage of dangerous goods by air transport. Dangerous goods training is based on the requirements outlined in the most current version of the IATA DGR and the ICAO Technical Instructions, and complies with Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations Subpart H, Section 172.704 (49 CFR).

Federal and International government regulations require hazmat employees to undergo recurrent training within three years of the previous training for shipments within the USA and its territories and every two years in accordance with ICAO, or else they are not legally allowed to perform any duties involving the handling of dangerous goods prior to transportation. The reason for this is to maintain accuracy and stay up to date with new or amended regulations. All hazmat employees, even experienced professionals in the field, need to become familiar with any updates to the IATA / ICAO Regulations for the safety of themselves and others. This course provides required initial dangerous goods training to participants involved with shipping, receiving, handling, and storage of dangerous goods by air transport.
