  • Are Consumer Commodities dangerous goods by air transport?

    Every day, thousands of personal care and household products such as nail lacquers, certain medicines and aerosols or perfumes are shipped by air transport. However, do we bear in mind that they can be required to be declared as dangerous goods?

     

    Consumer Commodities air transport

    According to IATA DGR 55th Edition, Appendix A, a consumer commodity is defined as “a material which is packed and distributed in a form intended or suitable for retail sales for the purposes of personal care or household use (see special provision A112 for classes and divisions permitted under this definition)”.

    To get a better insight about how to ship consumer commodities, read and learn from the following article -written by DGM New York- about how to meet compliance requirements in accordance with air transport regulations

    The article provides the guidelines needed to prepare consumer  commodities shipments   to be in compliance with international air transport requirements such as:

    • Identification of consumer commodities
    • Their classification under ID 8000
    • Packaging requirements
    • Marking and labelling requirements
    • Information required to be provided in the Dangerous Goods Declaration (DGD)

    For further details or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. DGMwill ensure your shipments are fully compliant with regulations.

  • Implementation of the electronic Air Waybill

    As technology advances, the way business is made changes as well. In the case of dangerous goods documentation, electronic-based alternatives are being introduced for the traditional paper documents used for air shipments, most notably the Air Waybill. Will electronic data techniques completely replace the use of paper? What are the potential benefits for operators and users?

  • New segregation provisions for lithium batteries

    The upcoming new edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) has introduced segregation provisions for certain packages containing lithium batteries. This has been a result of our better understanding of the risks posed by one of the most common dangerous goods that are shipped worldwide. While some of these provisions will come into effect immediately together with the rest of the new provisions on January 1st, 2018, for others a transitional period has been devised.
