Personnel who prepare dangerous goods air shipments must comply with unique requirements in the International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR) in addition to domestic 49 CFR hazmat rules. Failure to comply with the IATA DGR can result in rejected shipments, emergencies, injury, and fines as high as $79,976 per day, per violation.
New rules in the 60th Edition DGR take effect January 1, 2019.
This online course is designed to help satisfy the IATA DGR training requirement for hazmat air shippers and provides function-specific hazmat training for personnel who package, mark, label, or document air shipments. Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook and Lion’s top-notch reference materials.
