Dangerous goods can be shipped in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. This document is a technical guideline and has the force of law. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) produces its own version of the ICAO document and calls it the Dangerous Goods Regulations.
It is a serious offense to allow the carriage of dangerous goods even in the slightest non-compliance with these regulations. To ensure that undeclared dangerous goods or those declared but not in compliance with the Regulations are not loaded on board, those responsible are legally responsible.
