Dangerous Goods (DG) Overview

The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations demand stringent compliance procedures when shipping dangerous goods by air as international shipments must comply with both the ICAO Technical Instructions, as well as national regulations. In order to meet commercial standards, shippers and operators are also required to meet the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR).
