About the International Air Transport Association (IATA)
Dangerous Goods Regulations (DRG) are the world airline industry’s guidance for preparing, packing, documenting and accepting dangerous goods for transport by air. It is essential that shippers, cargo agents and freight forwarders comply with these regulations to ensure safe and efficient transport of dangerous goods. Cargo handlers are responsible for ensuring compliance with regulations and can face potential fines for non-compliance. For more information about IATA, visit http://www.iata.org.
