Recognized by airlines worldwide, the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) is THE industry standard for shipping dangerous goods by air. It is the most complete, up-to-date and user-friendly reference manual trusted by the industry for over 50 years.
Maintaining compliance with the latest regulations is critical for safely shipping dangerous goods by air. The DGR draws from the industry’s most trustworthy cargo sources to help you classify, pack, mark, label, and document shipments of dangerous goods. The DGR includes international dangerous goods air regulations, as well as state and airline requirements. It is an invaluable resource in ensuring you have all the information you need to ship safely and in compliance, at your fingertips.
55th edition of DGR: what’s new?
The new edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), which became available early October 2013, will take effect 1 January 2014. This edition of the DGR will reflects the changes adopted through addenda to the 2013 – 2014 edition of the ICAO Technical Instructions, as well as changes agreed by the IATA Dangerous Goods Board (DGB).
This edition of the DGR incorporates a requirement for certain lithium battery shipments, which had previously been allowed to just be described on the air waybill, to have to be accompanied by a Shipper’s Declaration for Dangerous Goods. This change applies to lithium ion and lithium metal batteries, such as the type used in consumer electronic devices, shipped under the provisions of Section IB of the applicable packing instruction.
To ease the change for shippers of these batteries, the DGB agreed to a 3-month transition period until the end of March 2014 for shippers to implement this change. IATA published the guidance document on lithium batteries (pdf) to comply with the regulations that come into effect 1 Jan 2014
Get ready for ICAO regulatory changes
Other content in the 55th Edition is a specific appendix that identifies the changes to the Regulations that will become effective 1 January 2015 with the publication of the 2015 – 2016 edition of the ICAO Technical Instructions. This appendix is produced in an effort to provide shippers, operators and others in the supply chain with advance information that will allow them to be better prepared for the new requirements in 2015.
