Download and print this PDF of the Shipper's Declaration for Dangerous Goods (often referred to as the IATA Dangerous Goods form) for your shipments of dangerous goods by air.
What is a Dangerous Goods IATA Form?
The International Air Transport Association, which makes up the majority of the world’s airlines, uses the ICAO Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air as the basis for their dangerous goods regulations (IATA-DGR).
Some airlines have specific operational variations. These variations identify unique requirements specific to that particular airline and are always more restrictive than the DGR. FedEx, for example, has very specific documentation requirements, and shippers should be aware of these variations.
Air waybill(s) accompanying dangerous goods consignment(s) for which a dangerous goods declaration is required must include the following statements, as applicable, in the Handling Information box: “Dangerous goods as per attached Shipper’s Declaration,” and possibly “Cargo Aircraft Only” if applicable.
The Shipper’s DG Declaration has very specific requirements and can be quite complex. Only people who have been trained in handling and packaging dangerous goods should complete this document.
