Here is a short video produced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) that succinctly describes IATA and its Dangerous Goods Regulations for the transport of dangerous goods by air.
I couldn’t say it any better myself!

Things to consider about IATA Dangerous Goods Training:
- It is not required for employees who receive dangerous goods that were transported by aircraft unless they work at an airport or aircraft unloading facility.
- Initial training must be provided before performing a regulated function.
- Full renewal training must be provided within 24 months of initial training.
- Employees must be tested as part of the training. Successful completion of the test must be confirmed.
The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations are updated each calendar year. For 2017, the 58th Edition should be your only source for determining compliance.
Compliance with the Dangerous Goods Regulations of IATA are mandatory if you ship hazardous materials/dangerous goods by air either international or domestic. In its Hazardous Material Regulations, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration of the US Department of Transportation (PHMSA/USDOT) authorizes the use of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations – with certain additional requirements and limitations – for the transport of HazMat/dangerous goods to, from, or through the U.S. Make certain you comply with both the domestic and international regulations when you ship hazardous materials/dangerous goods by air.
