Who Is IATA?

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is a commercial organization comprised of hundreds of airlines (about 85% of world air traffic). IATA's purpose is to maximize the social and economic benefits of aviation.

Shippers must comply with the Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) to get airline operators to transport their materials. The DGR combines the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IATA airlines' procedures, other nations’ unique dangerous goods rules, and other requirements for hazmat air shipments.  

The IATA DGR changes each year. It's crucial that hazmat air shippers have the current edition at all times, because the variations between different countries and different operator airlines often change when the DGR changes. Knowing these variations before your packages leave your loading dock could prevent lengthy shipping delays, unnecessary costs from time spent in foreign customs' storage areas, and fines.
