The Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), Live Animals Regulations (LAR) and Perishable Cargo Regulations (PCR) for Electronic Flight Bags (eFB) allow flight crew to quickly verify details pertaining to the dangerous goods, live animal and perishable cargo onboard the aircraft and ensure a more efficient and expedient pre-flight check. Ultimately, the pilot in command is the final decision maker when it comes to flight departure checks, so having the information at their fingertips is of utmost importance.

IATA Regulations tailored for flight crews

The eFB format allows flight crew to act fast in the event of an onboard incident caused by a dangerous goods, live animals or perishable cargo shipment. The eFB provides them with the necessary information to make quick and accurate decisions considering ​the type and nature of the goods, as well as the nature of the problem and appropriate procedure to follow, supporting this information detailed on the Notification To Captain (NOTOC).

That’s why we’ve developed a DGR, LAR and PCR specifically tailored for flight crews − simplified and conveniently packaged to be included in your eFB.
