What is the IATA DGR?
The International Air Transport Association’s Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR) is the manual used by hazmat shippers, freight forwarders, brokers, and airlines to mitigate the risks posed by hazardous materials during air transport. The IATA DGR combines international hazmat regulations from the United Nations, the ICAO TI, with unique requirements and preferences of member airlines—including passenger airlines and major cargo carriers like UPS and FedEx.
