IATA Guidance Document – Specification of Hazard Labels (6:22 AM, 03/28/2018)

LOGAR will share this news with you:

As it is now well documented that the UN Subcommittee and the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel have determined that the thickness of the line on hazard labels has no bearing on safety, and the provisions in the ICAO Technical Instructions and IATA DGR will formally remove reference to the thickness of the line on hazard labels with effect 1 January 2019, please find attached a guidance document advising that the dangerous goods acceptance check should not consider the thickness of the line.

Specialized training for Shippers of Infectious Substances

Our specialized trainings for shippers of division 6.2, infectious substances for air transport particularly aim at meeting the needs of shippers of diagnostic specimens, samples for clinical trials and infectious cultures used in laboratories and hospitals.

We offer two different training courses which depending on your professional requirements:

 

INF 1:

Our INF 1 course covers the Shipping of UN 3373, Biological Substance Category B, the requirements applicable to so-called “Exempt Human or Exempt Animal Specimen” as well as the provisions for UN 1845, Dry Ice (Carbon Dioxide, solid) used as a refrigerant and the conditions for the exemption of “Dry Shippers” (Ultra-low temperature dewars filled with liquefied Nitrogen):  

Duration: One day (eight hours) including test. Where participants achieve a passmark of 80% or more, they acquire an IATA certification for Shippers, staff category 1, limited to UN 3373 and UN 1845.

 

Note: Packing Instruction 650, applicable to „Biological Substances Category B“ stipulates that shippers of such commodities who do not ship any other dangerous goods are not subject to the formal training requirements. However, this exemption expressly does not cover the shipping of Dry Ice used as a refrigerant; shippers who use UN 1845Dry Ice as a refrigerant for UN 3373 are subject to the training requirements of subsection 1.5 of the IATA DGR and must be in the possession of a training certificate. Such training must be renewed at least every 24 months.

That being said, a correct application of all provisions and requirements made in packing instruction 650 and the exemption scenario for exempt human or exempt animal specimens will require some subject - matter knowledge which is best achieved by formal training; this will ultimately also guarantee compliance on the shipper’s side.

 

INF 2:

Our INF 2 course covers the Shipping of infectious substances in Category A which will require the issuance of a particular air transport document, the “Shipper’s Declaration for Dangerous Goods”:

Duration: Two days (16 hours) including test. Where participants achieve a passmark of 80% or more, they acquire an IATA certification for Shippers, staff category 1, limited to UN 3373, UN 2814, UN 2900 and UN 1845.

The training course will, at the choice of the customer, be held in either German or English language*, both on site in Baden - Baden, Germany and Vienna, Austria; or as inhouse training at any location the customer desires**.

 

 

* Please kindly consider that in Germany any training must generally be delivered in the official German language. Exemptions are possible but subject to approval by regulatory authorities - please contact us in order to discuss your requirements !

 

** In many European and Asian states, providers of dangerous goods training for air transport are subject to endorsement requirements of the national Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). In such cases, LOGAR will either acquire such endorsement from the local CAA or recommend another provider who is already in the possession of such CAA accreditation.
