Declaration requirement for consignors of dangerous goods

The FOCA has taken the recent partial revision of the Air Transport Ordinance (ATO; SR 748.411) as an opportunity to adapt the structure of dangerous goods supervision to actual circumstances and, in particular, to overhaul the supervision of entities listed as shipper on the dangerous goods transport document.

Entities listed as shipper on the dangerous goods transport document in accordance with Part 5, Chapter 4 of the TIs to ICAO Annex 18 are required from 1 April 2023 to submit a one-time declaration to the FOCA before delivering their first dangerous goods consignment at the cargo acceptance point.

With this declaration, the company required to submit a declaration confirms to the FOCA that it complies with all Swiss and international regulations on dangerous goods.
