IATA DGR Class 9 Miscellaneous

Shipping Dry Ice, Lithium Batteries, and Magnetized Materials by Air

Online Training Certification Course

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training course covers how to use the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and transport Class 9 dangerous goods. Class 9 materials are considered hazardous but do not meet the criteria for one of the other eight hazard classes. They still present a multitude of potential dangers to health and safety, property, and the environment. Commonly shipped goods with IATA Class 9 certification include lithium batteries, asbestos, magnetized material, dry ice, and battery-powered equipment and vehicles.

This course is for:
IATA DGR safety training is required for hazardous material personnel as defined in IATA DGR Table 1.5 A. This includes airline acceptance staff, shippers, packers, and freight forwarders; cargo training and development specialists; ground handling and load control staff involved in the cargo chain; regulatory compliance specialists; operations and station managers; and security screeners.

Case Study: In September of 2010, a UPS Boeing 747 departed from Dubai International Airport and crashed en route to Cologne, Germany. Approximately 22 minutes after takeoff, the fire warning system for the cargo compartments indicated a fire on the main deck. The crew declared an emergency and immediately requested to turn back to Dubai. As the plane prepared for an emergency landing, the crew noted smoke in the cockpit, lack of oxygen, and difficultly reading the instruments. The plane crashed just south of Dubai International Airport. The two crew members were both killed.

Although the exact cause of the fire is unknown, the plane was carrying a large quantity of lithium batteries, as well as other combustible material. It is believed that the lithium batteries contributed to the crash, and this prompted more stringent regulations on lithium batteries.

Governing Regulations

What are the governing regulations?
The standards detailed in 49 CFR 173.140 identify Class 9 materials as those with the potential to impair the flight crews' ability to perform their duties safely. Shipping dry ice, lithium batteries, or any other Class 9 substance is governed by the IATA Class 9 Dangerous Goods Regulations. This online certification course satisfies all air carrier requirements for proof of IATA 9 training, including FedEx and UPS.

If you are also shipping other classes of dangerous goods you must take our full IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations training course in place of this one.

If you do not have a copy, you will need to purchase the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) Manual both for reference purposes in your day to day shipping operations, and while taking this course.

You can access the IATA DGR Current Edition Significant Changes document from our "Resources" section.

IATA DGR Class 9 Miscellaneous 63rd

It was a straight forward course which guides the student on how to use the IATA DGR Edition 61. My only suggestion would be to maybe include a few samples or list some of the steps to locate some of the information. Maybe even adding page numbers as a reference on some of the training modules or case studies. Thank you for the training it was very informational.
