Should a shipper decide not to take advantage of the new exception in IATA DGR SP A220 and deliver a consignment documented, marked or labeled as ELI or ELM, than a formal DG acceptance check sheet in accordance with LX CHM 22.214.171.124.1 / 126.96.36.199 must be issued upon cargo acceptance.
Note: As per IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) 2021 Addendum A220. Packages containing COVID-19 pharmaceutical accompanied by data logger and or cargo tracking devices containing lithium batteries are not subject to the marking and documentation requirements of Section II Packaging Instruction 967 or 970, as applicable. This same package configuration, when consigned without the COVID-19 pharmaceutical for use or reuse, is also not subject to the marking and documentation requirements of Section II Packaging Instruction 967 or 970, providing prior arrangements have been made with the operator. Please contact your local Swiss WorldCargo office for information on repositioning empty packaging(s) that have real time tracking devices.
