IATA Posts Addendum I to the 58th Edition DGR
IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 58th Edition (English) Effective 1 January 2017 ADDENDUM Posted 20 June 2017.

This week, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) released the first Addendum to the 58th Edition Dangerous Goods Regulations, or DGR.

In addition to extensive revisions to the IATA DGRoperator variations and editorial amendments, Addendum I makes updates to the requirements for shipping consumer commodities, aerosols, lithium batteries, and more.


Consumer Commodities Shipped by Air

This addendum to the DGR adds UN 3334, “Aviation regulated liquid, n.o.s.” and UN 3335, “Aviation Regulated Solid, n.o.s.” to the list of substances accepted for air transport under Packing Instruction Y963 for ID 8000, “Consumer commodities.”


Shipping Aerosols by Air

Addendum I includes 3 notable updates for businesses that ship aerosols by air:
 
  • Removes the requirement that packagings containing aerosols shipped as limited quantity (UN 2037) meet PG II standards. 
  • Removes the words “self-closing” from the definition of “aerosols” at IATA DGR 3.2.5.1.
  • For UN 1950, “Aerosols, non-flammable (tear gas devices), IATA has lowered the net quantity per package from 150 kg to 50 kg.
