Dangerous Goods


Dangerous Goods are defined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as articles or substances capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment and shown in the IATA's list of dangerous goods. Surprisingly, many of the day to day products that are consumed around the world are considered to be Dangerous Goods.

Dangerous Goods within the US are regulated under the CFR 49; international Air shipments are regulated by IATA/ICAO; and international sea shipments are regulated by the IMDG code. Additionally, there are carrier and country restrictions that apply. Personnel that are handling, packing, certifying and/or documenting DG shipments must be trained at least every 24 months.

Severe penalties exist for failure to comply with the appropriate DG regulations, but this is where PWS can help.
