Individuals packaging and shipping hazardous materials (referred to as Dangerous Goods or DG by carriers) are required by federal law to have special training and certification. Shipping DG by ground requires DOT training that must be repeated every three years and shipping DG by air requires IATA training to be repeated every two years. Severe civil and even criminal penalties may be incurred by individuals who improperly ship DG or who attempt to carry undeclared DG onto an aircraft.
