Shipping Dangerous Goods by Air

International shipments must comply with both the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Technical Instructions, as well as national regulations. In order to meet commercial standards, shippers are also required to meet the IATA (International Air Transport Association) Dangerous Goods Regulations. Furthermore, some countries and airlines have filed variations to many of these requirements. Failure to comply with any of these may result in costly delays, but most importantly, legal charges.
