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.

Shipping of substances under Competent Authority approval

Particularly in air transport, certain substances, products and articles appear as „Forbidden“ for transport aboard passenger aircraft or even “ Forbidden” for transport aboard Cargo aircraft only in subsection 4.2 of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

Where such substance, product or article is forbidden for transport aboard a passenger aircraft, Special Provision A 1 is often applied which permits a transport aboard a passenger aircraft with competent authority approval of the state of departure, the registry state of the operator, the state of origin and sometimes also the state of destination or transit. Likewise, Special Provision A2 regulates the transport of substances, products and articles which are (normally) entirely forbidden for air transport and which always require such competent authority approval.

LOGAR has the Know-How required in order to transport such substances, products and articles effectively and in a timely fashion. We evaluate the facts, give recommendations for transport, packaging and handling and obtain the required Special Permits from the relevant competent authorities of the states concerned, both national and international.

Where so required, we nominate a suitable forwarding company and help with the choice of an airline - not always the “most obvious” choice is the best!

If so desired by a customer, we manage the whole transport or project as complete solution package, tailored to your needs.

Furthermore, also substances, products and articles which appear without the Special Provisions A1 or A2 in the IATA DGR may be transported with a competent authority approval, depending on the case.

One must, however, be aware that for transports to, from or through the US or aboard of a US - registered means of conveyance, all applicable requirements of Volume 49 of the US Federal Regulations (commonly called “49CFR) must be complied with.

This also applies for a number of other specific US requirements, such as the TSCA requirements in 40 CFR.

LOGAR has the necessary expertise in order to evaluate even complex situations in an efficient and thorough manner.

This being said, one must keep in mind that a solid knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of any such substance, product or article is a mandatory prerequisite in order to classify such substance, product or article for the purpose of transport and in compliance with the applicable modal regulatory framework(s).

Where that is required, LOGAR can arrange such chemical or physical testing of   substances, products or articles which have unknown or not fully evaluated chemical and physical properties. For certain classes and divisions of dangerous goods, however, a classification through the national competent authority (e.g. for substances, products or articles in Class 1 or Division 5.2) is mandated by the regulations.
