Technical Instructions for The Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (Doc 9284)

The broad principles governing the international transport of dangerous goods by air are contained inAnnex 18to the Convention on International Civil Aviation —The Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. The Technical Instructions amplify the basic provisions of Annex 18 and contain all the detailed instructions necessary for the safe international transport of dangerous goods by air. Dangerous goods can be carried safely by air transport providing certain principles are adopted. These principles have been used in developing the Technical Instructions. They are intended to facilitate transport while providing a level of safety such that dangerous goods can be carried without placing an aircraft or its occupants at risk, providing all the requirements are fulfilled. They try to ensure that should an incident occur it cannot lead to an accident. On 10 September 2015, the International Civil Aviation Organisation published an Addenda/Corrigenda to the Technical Instructions. These changes were made to reflect recommendations by the Dangerous Goods Panel. Details of Addendum/Corrigendum No. 2 to the Technical Instructions (2015/2016 Edition) is available at: Addendum/Corrigendum No. 2 to the Technical Instructions (2015/2016 Edition)
