Dangerous Goods (DG)

The DG Committee promotes the safe transportation of dangerous goods by air. Articles and substances capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property, or the environment are regulated as dangerous goods, and may be carried safely only when properly declared, packaged, labelled, and when the Pilot in Command is notified. IFALPA seeks to maintain the highest regulatory standards for the transport of declared dangerous goods, as well as preventing undeclared dangerous goods from being carried on aircraft.
