Packing Dangerous Goods

Dangerous goods must be packed in accordance with net quantity per package and packing instruction to comply with chapter 5 and 6 of IATA DGR. Packing is the most important factor to ensure safety of transport of dangerous goods by air.

The change of altitude, pressure and temperature may cause leak substances in the inside of packages, especially in the transportation of gases or liquid substances. Therefore, dangerous goods are never packed over 9/10 of receptacles for liquid substances.

Vietnam Airlines may requires the shipper to present the certificate of competent agency on the packing test in accordance with the above requirements prior to acceptance of transport.

Any package showing a sign of leakage or of unsafe structure shall be not accepted to transport until the packing has been made again and the current packages must ensure completely safety and comply with IATA DGR.
