Quick Reference Card
We have identified a possible error in the Quick Reference Cards provided with each copy of the IATA DGR. To know if you have an erroneous one please check the “Handling Labels” section of the card. If it shows both of the Cargo Aircraft Only labels, the card is incorrect and you must replace it.
If you have received an incorrect card we recommend that you contact IATA Customer Service or download a new Quick Reference Card (pdf).
Checklists for the 54th Edition
Infectious substances are materials that contain pathogens. These micro-organisms (including bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi) and other agents can cause disease in humans or animals.
Environmentally hazardous substances
Certain materials can be a threat to the nature and adversely affect people's health. To classify them, the IATA DGR refers to the criteria for environmentally hazardous substances of the UN Model Regulations (pdf).
