The International Air Transport Association's Hazardous Materials Regulations require documentation to transport dangerous goods. These documents describe the dangerous goods being shipped and provide a tracking mechanism during the shipping process. They also serve as a source of information for emergency personnel responding to a HAZMAT incident during transportation. In this course, you'll explore the information to be included on the Shipper's Declaration for Dangerous Goods and air waybill for a shipment of dangerous goods.
