IATA to Relax Hazard Label Specs for DG Air Shippers
Learn the latest IATA DGR standards to keep your DG air shipments in full compliance at the Hazmat Air Shipper Certification Workshop in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City, and North NJ in April.
Following the UN’s lead, IATA introduced new hazard label design requirements—including a minimum 2 mm border line on all hazard labels—in the 56th Edition Dangerous Goods Regulations and provided a two-year transition period for shippers to come into compliance.
Background on the 2 mm Border Line
Many dangerous goods shippers and stakeholders raised concerns about a 2 mm border requirement, given that the size of the border on the label does not have any impact on the safety of the shipment.
The ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel has decided to modify the hazard label specifications in the Technical Instructions (TI), effective in the 2019-2020 edition. Once the TI are updated, IATA will update its own hazard label rules at DGR 220.127.116.11.2(a) to remove or relax the 2 mm border requirement.
What Happens Next for DG Air Shippers?
Until the DGR is updated, hazard labels that do not conform to the 2 mm border rule will be treated as a “minor variation.” Minor variations are acceptable so long as they do not affect the obvious meaning of the label.
Meet DOT and IATA training mandates in cities nationwide in 2018. Be confident your shipments are in full compliance with the latest 49 CFR and DGR requirements for ground or air transport. Or join a Lion instructor live on May 1 for the IATA Air Shipper Certification Webinar.

The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
