The IATA dangerous goods regulations

The shipping industry and the transportation of goods be that of any type, is a complex network weaving together the involvement of multiple resources in a variety of combinations to produce a single result, the safe collection, movement, and delivery of materials in accordance with all regulations and company specifications to serve the client, customer, and consumer. This process includes so many different factions it’s often easy to get lost in the shuffle which prompted the need to create one unified guideline of standards to adhere to and follow. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has been an important body of members with a collective mission of safety in mind for over 100 years. Consisting of at least 250 airlines, it makes up approximately 84% of all air traffic. We at Air Sea Containers make it a point to go above and beyond those regulations set forth by the IATA. We are in full support of the IATA and are proud to call ourselves members of an organization so centered on the continued safety of the aircraft and any persons involved in the transportation of potentially dangerous goods. Defining a standard and documenting the proper training and handling of materials that require the highest degree of attention has led to a list of forbidden and restricted items deemed too dangerous to be placed on an aircraft.

The IATA manual

IATA has worked very closely with local and international governments including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in the development of the regulations that have been compiled over the years. The constant review and updating of these regulations ensure that they remain relevant, effective, and efficient. The compiled information led to the creation of the manual of Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) which was quickly recognized globally as the only standard of reference for the shipment of dangerous goods by air. The IATA issued the DGR manual for the effective training of individuals newly entering the shipment industry. A network of accredited training schools ensured the consistent teaching of up to date information. Guidelines outlining the proper tools and resources needed for professional airlines to transport dangerous goods safely. New editions are published annually including effective start dates for any changes, inclusions, or exclusions to go into effect. The IATA leads the industry in providing all the technical knowledge, products and service to satisfy the exact demands dangerous goods require for safe passage all covered in the IATA manuals.

The IATA books

IATA publications which are available are varied and specific to certain areas of interest. Along with the DGR manual are the Airport Handling Manual (AHM), the Live Animal Regulations manual (LAR), the Instructors Toolkit, the Perishable Cargo Regulations manual (PCR), the Combined Cargo Conference, the Workbook 1: Shippers & Cargo Agents, the Workbook 2: Load Planners & Flight Crew, the Workbook 3: Passenger Handling Staff & Flight Crew, the Workbook 4: Loading & Warehouse Personnel, the Workbook 5: General Cargo Acceptance Personnel, the Guidelines for Shipping Lithium Batteries by Air, the Multilateral Interline Traffic Agreements manual (MITA), the Cargo Claims and Loss Prevention Handbook (CCHB), the Temperature Control Regulations, the Airline Coding Directory (ACD), the Passenger Services Conference Resolutions Manual (PSCRM), the Reservations Interline Message Procedures-Passenger (AIRIMP), the Quick Reference Guide, and the DGR Compliance Kit. All of these publications are available in hardbound, paperback, spiral bound, e-books, and CD-ROMs. The IATA books are also available in a variety of languages like, English, Spanish, and German. All IATA publications are available through our Air Sea Containers official web site.
