ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) and FIATA (International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations) have signed an agreement on a new ICAO/FIATA Dangerous Goods by Air training programme.

“This is an important collaboration for FIATA and the industry,” said Jean-Claude Delen, FIATA’s president. “We will now be offering a training programme to our members backed by ICAO’s vast technical knowledge and regulatory experience. Our entire freight forwarder membership will benefit from this development, especially in such a critical area as the safe transport of dangerous goods by air.”

Raymond Benjamin, Secretary General of ICAO, commented: “This is an extremely important initiative for enhancing the safety of the global air transport system. Freight Forwarders account for a large segment of all shipments transported by air and constitute a critical element for strengthening the air cargo supply chain around the world.”
