How to Ship Consumer Commodities and Limited Quantities - Webcast
Consumer commodities (ORM-D) 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. And when you ship them by air, they are subject to more stringent regulations established by IATA and ICAO. Regulatory relief is also granted to sample shipments, materials that are transported by private motor carriers in support of a business, and small quantities of one ounce or less. Employees that perform pre-transportation functions (including filling, marking, and labeling packages), or transportation functions (including loading or unloading) are required to be properly trained in the DOT regulations for shipments of most hazardous materials. Regulatory relief concerning training is only granted for materials of trade and small quantities.
In this four-hour webcast, you will learn how to prepare consumer commodities and limited quantities for ground and air transportation and receive certification to perform these functions. You’ll also learn how to take advantage of other exceptions that can save you time and money on your hazmat shipments, including those for materials of trade and small/excepted quantities.
