This webinar gives the shipper of Consumer Commodities all the details necessary for completely understanding the domestic (USA) and the more intricate international air regulatory requirements of the International Air Transport Association’s Dangerous Goods Regulations manual.
Shipping a Consumer Commodity, or ORM-D, domestically in the USA has relatively less regulatory restrictions than most fully regulated hazardous materials. But a lot of shipper’s don’t know how the regulations apply for offering a hazardous material as a Consumer Commodity.
A Consumer Commodity is defined as a material which is packed and distributed in a form intended or suitable for retail sales for the purposes of personal care or household use. Before a Consumer Commodity can be classified as such it must first meet the Limited Quantity packaging criteria. Shipping by air has more restrictive requirements as specified in IATA’s Dangerous Goods Regulations Special Provision A112…Consumer Commodities may only include substances of Class 2 (non-toxic aerosols only), Class 3 (Packing Group II or III), Division 6.1 (Packing Group III only), UN 3077, UN 3082 and UN 3175, provided such substances do not have a subsidiary risk. Dangerous goods that are forbidden for transport aboard passenger aircraft must not be transported as Consumer Commodities.
