Consultancy


The requirements of ICAO and IATA are necessarily comprehensive to ensure the highest levels of flight safety.  But they can also be complex.  The Dangerous Goods Office can help in a number of ways.  For example, we can help shippers comply with the requirements which will not only avoid delayed shipments and enforcement penalties, (which in some parts of the world can be very costly) but ensure their dangerous goods do not endanger the safety of an aircraft, its occupants and any ground staff handling baggage and cargo.  We can also help aviation authorities to determine appropriate oversight in the State and assist with the implementation of associated procedures.

With our unique experience of ensuring compliance with the requirements, combined with many years of contributing to their development, the Dangerous Good Office can offer the following consultancy services:
