IATA Launches DG AutoCheck to Verify the Hazmat Shipper’s Declaration

Posted on 3/23/2018 by Roger Marks

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Plane_on_tarmac_loading_boxes_299178752.jpgrecently launched a new digital tool to help air carriers verify compliance with the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR). 
 
Called DG AutoCheck, the new tool checks the Shipper’s Declaration and the packaging, markings, and labels against the latest edition of the DGR.  Ground handlers and airlines can use the tool--which IATA says will include a pictorial representation of a compliant package--during physical inspection and package acceptance check. 
 
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.
 
It seems that already crucial steps in the shipping process like documenting, marking, and labeling air consignments properly will now be even more important. A computerized system could be unforgiving for shippers, leading to rejection for the smallest mistakes.
