Dear Beloved Members,
Security and Safety in the Air Cargo Industry is a responsibility that all stakeholders in the supply chain needs to accept as their own. This includes goods handled and passed on from one supply chain player to another. Dangerous goods, particularly Lithium Battery shipments, has been the focus of regulators, where increasing restrictions due to misdeclarations have been adopted to protect people and airline assets.
Since 2015, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has been running Dangerous Goods Workshops throughout the Asia Pacific region, with the objective of raising awareness on the proper handling, acceptance and loading of DG shipments for transport by air. This year, IATA will organize 6 workshops in the region to continue their activities in increasing safety awareness when moving dangerous goods.
This year, the Cambodia Freight Forwarders Association (CAMFFA), is happy to announce that we have convinced IATA to hold one workshop in Phnom Penh and bring a higher level of awareness on properly handling dangerous goods. This workshop will touch on the following key items:
• Overview of the current DG regulations in Cambodia
• Update on changes adopted by the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel
• Update on Lithium Batteries
• Update on Competency Based Training
• Global Pest Practices
We expect representatives from the Civil Aviation Authority, Airlines and IATA to share updates, experiences and guidance. The workshop date will be on 06th November 2019 and will be held at the Cambodiana Hotel.
A registration fee of USD 150 for member and USD170 for non-member and general will be asked per participant, and in return they will receive a copy of Dangerous Goods Regulations Manual (valued at USD328) plus a Certificate of Attendance, signed by both IATA and CamFFA.
Registration ends on 06th October, 2019.
