IATA's 56th Edition DGR Now Mandatory
The US Department of Transportation recently updated its Hazardous Materials Regulations as well, to harmonize with international standards like the ICAO Technical Instructions and the IATA DGR. Learn more about the HMT 215M harmonization rulemaking here.
- Updated State and operator variations
- Airbag inflators, airbag modules, and seatbelt pre-tensioners now collected under the new Proper Shipping Name "Safety Devices"
- Lithium-metal batteries now prohibited from passenger aircraft
- New exceptions for marine pollutants in small quantities
- Clarifying revisions to marking/labeling specifications
Recently, IATA issued an addendum to the 56th edition to make technical corrections to the first printing of the new DGR. See what changed in the addendum here.
As an aid to users, the IATA DGR summarizes year-over-year significant changes and amendments in its introduction. The DGR uses symbols in the text to denote additions, changes, or cancellations from the previous year.

These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

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
Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.
Senior Director of EH&S
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
