FedEx Express updated operator variation FX-05 to clarify its acceptance criteria for lithium batteries.
FedEx also added operator variation FX-09, to require that all Overpack or “All Packed in One” shipments comply with segregation requirements from 49 CFR 77.848.
Emirates (EK) expanded the categories of dangerous goods that will not be accepted for carriage as cargo to included Class 4 and Class 5 hazardous materials. Other airlines that updated operator variations in this addendum include Jetstar Japan (GK), Royal Dutch Airlines, Asiana Airlines (OZ), and others.
IATA Packing InstructionsIf you use any of the following IATA Packing Instructions (PI) to prepare your DG air shipments, review the addendum for changes that may be relevant to your shipping operations: PI 360, 361, 362, 363, or 364.
IATA changed the word “Fibre” to “Fibreboard” in the Single Packaging Tables for Composites across many Packing Instructions.

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 Technical Instructions or "TI," with unique requirements and preferences of member airlines—including passenger airlines and major cargo carriers like UPS and FedEx.
The IATA DGR is updated annually and all revised requirements take effect on January 1 of each new year.

I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
Registered Environmental Health Specialist
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
