Dangerous Goods, the Pandemic and the Future
In June, IATA partnered with Labelmaster and Hazardous Cargo Bulletin to examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on organizations that handle or transport dangerous goods (DG) and the changes needed to their DG management operations moving forward.
The survey found the need for better remote training capabilities, upgraded technology and more effective communication of data across the supply chain.

Air operators requested to update dangerous goods manuals and training programmes
The next edition of ICAO Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air becomes effective 1 January 2019 and introduces changes to both cargo and passenger operations. Operators must provide instructions concerning dangerous goods in their operations manuals and maintain dangerous goods training programmes. Specimen manual entries reflecting the changes are published on the CAA website. AOC holders should draft amendments to their operations manual and send to NPA@caa.co.uk with a completed form SRG 1832. Where the training programme is subject to CAA approval this should also be submitted under the same process.
