Subject: [NHCOLL-L:5965] More great news regarding dangerous goods shipping!!!
I just received a very promising message from my contact at IATA regarding carrying of specimens in dangerous goods on aircraft as checked or hand carried baggage. His message is below. Please note that this will only come into effect (be written into the regulations) in January 2013 and that all material must meet IATA SP A180 regulations.
This is indeed great news with respect to folks wanting to bring specimens back from the field that cannot be shipped by courier. It will also facilitate the carrying of loan materials by researchers. However, this does not mean that all import/export and USFWS requirements with regard to inspections, 3-177's, CITES or threatened/endangered species do not need to be met.
The ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel last year reviewed all of the special provisions and other conditions where there was the statement to the effect that if you did something then nothing else in the regulations applied. As a result of this review there will be changes to the passenger provisions effective 1 January 2013 that will specifically permit passengers to have in either checked or carry-on baggage non-infectious specimens containing small quantities of flammable liquids provided that the requirements of SP A180 are complied with.
This should make the issue much clearer for all concerned.
