TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE SAFE TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS BY AIR
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
These Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air, referred to herein as the "Instructions", prescribe the detailed requirements applicable to the international civil transport of dangerous goods by air by any aircraft (including both internal and external carriage). Any addenda to this edition of the ICAO Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air issued by ICAO constitute part of these Instructions.
Where specifically provided for in these Instructions, the States concerned may grant an approval provided that in such instances an overall level of safety in transport which is equivalent to the level of safety provided for in these Instructions is achieved.
a) of extreme urgency; or
b) when other forms of transport are inappropriate; or
c) when full compliance with the prescribed requirements is contrary to public interest,
the States concerned may grant an exemption from the provisions of the Instructions provided that in such instances every effort is made to achieve an overall level of safety in transport which is at least equivalent to the level of safety provided for in these Instructions.
For the State of overflight, if none of the criteria for granting an exemption are relevant, an exemption may be granted based solely on whether it is believed that an equivalent level of safety in air transport has been achieved.
Note 1.- For the purpose of approvals, "States concerned" are the States of Origin and the Operator, unless otherwise specified in these Instructions.
Note 2.- For the purpose of exemptions, "States concerned" are the States of Origin, Operator, Transit, Overflight and Destination.
Note 3.- Guidance for the processing of exemptions, including examples of extreme urgency, may be found in the Supplement to the Technical Instructions (Part S-1;1.2 and 1.3).
Note 4.- Refer to 1;2.1 for dangerous goods forbidden for transport by air under any circumstance.
Note 5.- Due to the differences in the type of operations carried out by helicopters compared with aeroplanes, some additional considerations need to be made when dangerous goods are carried by helicopter, as described in 7;7.
