What Are Articles Not Restricted?


As stated in IATA DGR 8.2.6 about the shipment of non-dangerous goods:

If an article or substance could be suspected of being a dangerous goods, but does not meet the criteria for any of the hazard classes or divisions, it may be offered for transport as not restricted if the words ‘Not Restricted’ are included in the description of the article or substance on the Air Waybill to indicate that it has been checked. The statement ‘Not restricted, as per Special Provision Axx’ must be included in the description of the article on the Air Waybill when required, to indicate that the Special Provision has been applied.”

A non-dangerous goods form relieves any suspicion if handlers question the nature of a product, and it assures them there are no dangerous goods involved. It also shows the shipper has taken due diligence and responsibility, formally presenting the product information and stating that the article or material being shipped is not restricted for air transport. It is not a required form, but it is commonly used to make the exporting process easier.
