Transport of dangerous goods by air must be in accordance with United States’ Regulations (49 CFR 171-180) or these Technical Instructions as limited by 49 CFR Part 171, Subpart C. The requirements of 49 CFR 175 apply to the offering, acceptance, and transportation of dangerous goods in commerce by aircraft to, from, or within the United States, and to any aircraft of United States’ registry anywhere in air commerce. Part 175 contains additional requirements applicable to any person who performs, attempts to perform, or is required to perform a function subject to 49 CFR and is also applicable to air passengers and crew.

1;1.5

 

 

When the Technical Instructions are used for consignments of dangerous goods, failure to comply with the Technical Instructions and all relevant United States’ variations is a violation of the United States’ regulations.

 

 

 

The appropriate national authority for the United States is:

 

 

 

      Associate Administrator for Hazardous Materials Safety

      Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration

      U.S. Department of Transportation

      Washington, D.C. 20590-0001

 

 

 

English must be used for all required package markings and for the dangerous goods transport document. Abbreviations may not be used unless they are specifically authorized by these Instructions or by Subpart C and D of 49 CFR 172.

5;2.5

5;4.1.6.3

 

 

A copy of the transport document, or an electronic image thereof, must be retained by the shipper for not less than two years after the dangerous goods are accepted by the initial operator. Each shipping paper copy must include the date of acceptance by the initial operator, except that the date on the air waybill or bill of lading may be used in place of the date of acceptance by the initial operator. For a hazardous waste, the transport document must be retained for three years after the waste material is accepted by the initial operator.

 

 

 

      Note.— The United States’ Regulations, as well as interpretations regarding their use, are available via the internet at http://www.phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/regs. Questions regarding the Regulations may be directed to the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety Information Center at (800) 467-4922, (202) 366-4488 or by e-mail at infocntr@dot.gov.

Cylinders of compressed oxygen must be transported in accordance with the following:

 

 

 

      a)   No more than a combined total of six cylinders of compressed oxygen per aircraft may be stowed in cargo compartments not equipped with a fire or smoke detection system and a fire suppression system;

 

 

 

      b)   Except for oxygen cylinders allowed to be transported in the passenger compartment under the conditions given below, oxygen cylinders transported on passenger aircraft or in an inaccessible cargo location on a cargo aircraft must be stowed horizontally as close as practicable to the floor of the cargo compartment or unit load device;

 

 

 

      c)   When transported in a Class B compartment or its equivalent (i.e. an accessible compartment equipped with a fire detection system), cylinders of compressed oxygen must be loaded in a manner that a crew member can see, handle and, when size and weight permit, separate the cylinders from other cargo during flight. No more than six cylinders of compressed oxygen and, in addition, one cylinder of medical-use compressed oxygen per passenger needing oxygen at destination — with a rated capacity of 1 000 L (34 cubic feet) or less of oxygen — may be carried in a Class B aircraft cargo compartment or its equivalent; and

 

 

 

      d)   Each cylinder must conform to the requirements identified in US Variation 6 and be packaged as required by US Variation 18.

 

 

 

A cylinder containing medical-use compressed oxygen, owned or leased by an aircraft operator or offered for transportation by a passenger needing it for personal medical use at destination, may be carried in the cabin of a passenger aircraft in accordance with the following provisions:

8;1.1.2

 

 

      a)   No more than six cylinders belonging to the aircraft operator and, in addition, no more than one cylinder per passenger needing the oxygen at destination, may be transported in the cabin of the aircraft;

Safety devices (including air bag inflators, air bag modules and seat-belt pretensioners etc.) may not be transported to, from or within the United States without prior approval by the appropriate authority of the United States (see US 1), Attention: Approvals and Permits Division (PHH-30). Such approval remains valid for subsequent transport provided there is no change in its composition, design or packaging. The dangerous goods transport document (shipping papers) must contain the EX number or product code for each approved safety device in association with the basic description required in 5;4.1.4. If product codes are used, they must be traceable to the specific EX number assigned to the safety device by the appropriate authority of the United States. The EX number or product code is not required to be marked on the outer package. Safety devices classified as Class 9 (UN 3268) in accordance with 49 CFR 173.166(b)(1) are not required to have an EX number assigned or have an EX number indicated on the transport documentation.
