What are the governing regulations?
The Department of Transportation coordinates with other regulatory agencies to oversee and enforce HAZMAT shipping standards, including the International Air Transport Association (IATA). All HAZMAT shipments must comply with the DOT's Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). Part 175 of 49 CFR is specific to the transportation of hazmat through carriage by aircraft. In addition to understanding general requirements covered in the Hazmat General Awareness and Security training course, air carriers and shippers must comply with additional regulations listed under §175, as well as certain regulations within 14 CFR Parts 21, 23, and 91.

Who must take this training?
Managers and employees who prepare hazmat for transport must receive air HAZMAT training. A HAZMAT employee includes anyone who classifies materials; signs shipping papers or manifests; assigns packing groups or hazard zones; determines markings or labels; works around hazardous materials; responds to hazard incidents; or operates any equipment used to transport hazardous materials. Both employees and anyone who directly supervises those performing HAZMAT activities must complete safety training.
