Dangerous goods are articles or substances which are capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment and which are shown in the list of dangerous goods in the Technical Instructions or which are classified according to those Instructions.
Many common items used every day in the home or workplace may seem harmless but when
transported by air can be very dangerous. In flight, variations in temperature and pressure can cause items to leak, generate toxic fumes or start a fire.
In general, dangerous goods are prohibited in luggage or in baggage. There are, however, certain exceptions for personal care, medical needs, sporting equipment, and items to support physically disabled passengers.
Part 8 of the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO Doc 9284–AN/905), 2015-2016 Edition, in which are prescribed provisions for dangerous goods carried by passengers or crew, has been significantly amended.
Provisions of the Technical Instructions shall be applicable for all international and domestic civil aircraft operations in accordance with provisions of the Dangerous Goods Transport Act and Ordinance on terms and conditions for transport of dangerous goods by air.
It should be noted that in accordance with security requirements some of the items (liquids, aerosols and gels) are now subject to more restrictive quantity limitations when carried in carry-on baggage from those specified in Part 8 of the Technical Instructions.
If you intend to carry one or more of the items that require the approval of the operator(s), please contact your airline(s) prior to your intended travel day. Airlines reserve the right not to accept any particular article for carriage.
