Dangerous Goods Training for IATA DGR IntroductionThe IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) is used worldwide by air carriers who accept and transport shipments of dangerous goods. All individuals involved in the handling, packaging, transporting, offering, acceptance, loading and unloading of dangerous goods must have the proper training to do so (IATA DGR 18.104.22.168). Shippers and freight forwarders (brokers) of dangerous goods must comply with training requirements and regulatory guidelines of the IATA DGR, often as a condition for air carriers to accept shipments of dangerous goods and hazardous materials for air transport. The Bureau of Dangerous Goods provides initial and recurrent training courses to meet these requirements with out instructor-led classroom training programs. Additionally, anyone involved in the transportation of hazardous materials within the United States must be properly trained to do so, under the requirements described in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), Subpart H, governed by the United States Department of Transportation. For air transport purposes, shipments of dangerous goods going onboard U.S. registered aircraft, destined to or departing from the United States must additionally adhere to 49 CFR regulations.
