Consumer commodities and limited quantities are subject to somewhat less stringent regulations than other hazardous materials. However, this does not mean that DOT doesn't regulate them at all. And, when you ship them by air, these materials are subject to more stringent regulations established by IATA and ICAO.
Any personnel at your site that perform pre-transportation functions (such as filling packages, or placing marks or labels on packages), or transportation functions (such as loading or unloading) are required to be trained in the DOT regulations that apply to their job functions.
In the How to Ship Consumer Commodities and Limited Quantities Webinar, you will learn how to prepare consumer commodities and limited quantities for ground and air transportation. You’ll learn how the phase-out of the ORM-D consumer commodity designation will impact your shipments, and how to take advantage of other exceptions that can save you time and money, including those for materials of trade, samples, small quantities, and excepted quantities.
