ICAO Posts Addendum I to the 2017-18 Technical Instructions for DG by Air
Read Addendum I to the 2017-18 ICAO TI in full here.
ICAO’s Technical Instructions, or TI for short, are international standards that serve as the basis for the International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR), the manual used by shippers worldwide to prepare hazardous materials/dangerous goods air shipments.
US DOT uses the ICAO TI as well—to make periodic “harmonization” updates to the 49 CFR Hazardous Material Regulations, or HMR. Most recently, DOT published a long-awaited harmonization rule, HM 215N, in which many of the changes made originated in the ICAO TI.
Read more about DOT's recent changes for hazmat shippers in HM 215N here.
The updates in ICAO's Addendum I include:
- Changes to some UN numbers and Proper Shipping Names in Part 3, Chapter 2 and 3
- Editorial updates to the lithium battery packing instructions (965, 966, 967, 968, 969, and 970)
- Amendments and updates to certain State and operator variations (including new lithium battery restrictions)

I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
Process & Resource Administrator
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.

This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.
Hazardous Waste Professional
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
