    Who writes the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations?

    The International Air Transport Association (IATA), a trade association of air carriers, has based its regulations on rules developed by ICAO. The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) incorporate the technical instructions required by ICAO Technical Instructions and air carrier-specific requirements. Most air carriers will not accept dangerous goods shipments that do not meet these additional restrictions making the IATA-approved training programs required for handling hazardous materials shipped by air. Therefore, IATA rules are the ones air shippers must comply with for most of the world’s airlines. Those airlines that are not IATA members can accept IATA training instead of applying their own. The US DOT accepts hazardous materials shipped under IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations for any shipments traveling by air. BROWSE BUTTERFLY TRAINING’S IATA TRAINING
