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.

Travel agents, passenger sales agencies and passenger handling services

When thinking about dangerous goods, usually articles and substances being shipped as cargo come to mind first.

However, many devices and substances used daily by consumers – such as

perfumery, deodorant aerosol sprays but also Lithium batteries in laptop

computers, mobile phones and other gadgets – are subject to the requirements

of the dangerous goods regulations, even when carried by air passengers

(or crew members) for personal use.

§ 27 of the German Air traffic act (Luftverkehrsgesetz) stipulates that passengers

and crew members may not carry any dangerous goods on either their person

or within their baggage, unless the particular dangerous goods are

expressly permitted under the scope of subsection 2.3 of the IATA Dangerous

Goods regulations or Chapter 5, subchapter 7-5-1 of the ICAO Technical

Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air.

The air transport regulations both from ICAO and IATA require that air

passengers must be educated about dangerous goods on a passenger’s

person and within a passenger’s baggage upon purchase of a ticket.

Subparagraph 1.4.3.1 of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations requires:

An operator must ensure that information as to the types of dangerous goods

which a passenger is forbidden from transporting aboard an aircraft is provided

at the point of ticket purchase (…).“

So as to enable employees of airlines, airports, ground handling service

providers, sales agencies, travel agents and baggage acceptance locations

(including railway stations and hotels which may provide air passenger

check-in options and accept baggage) to carry out their responsibilities,

the ICAO and IATA regulations as well as the EU – Ops in subchapter 1.1215

mandate dangerous goods training for such staff.

According to subparagraph 2.2.3 of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations,

„In addition to dangerous goods training for cargo acceptance and

passenger check-in  (…) and sales staff and passenger reservations and sales

staff must be provided with information (…)“.

Staff employed in airport or off-site check – in facilities as well as employees

of airlines and travel agents usually belong to IATA staff category 9.

A prerequisite from IATA’s side applied to holders of IATA cargo and passenger

agency accreditations is that at least two staff per branch office must hold

a dangerous goods certificate approved by IATA (e.g.; dangerous goods

training provided by either IATA themselves, an IATA ATS, IATA ATC or an IATA

member airline).

 

LOGAR  will be pleased to help you with evaluating  your training needs and to conduct the training in the applicable staff category. Where so desired, such training can be delivered as an inhouse course and customized to your needs in accordance with IATA and EASA regulations.
