Dangerous Goods Committee (DG)
The FESPLA Dangerous Goods Committee promotes the safe transportation of dangerous goods by air throughout the world. Articles and substances capable of posing a risk to heath, safety, property or the environment are regulated as dangerous goods, and may be carried safely only when properly declared, packaged, labelled, and when the Pilot in Command is notified. FESPLA seeks to maintain the highest regulatory standards for the transport of declared dangerous goods, as well as preventing undeclared dangerous goods from being carried on aircraft.
The Dangerous Goods Committee is composed of pilot volunteers from member associations throughout the world. These committee members represent FESPLA at the United Nations (UN) Sub Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, at the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Dangerous Goods Panel, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Board, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the World Health Organization (WHO) and various other governmental and industry events worldwide. The Committee Chairman is one of 17 voting members of the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel.
