Background

On March 30, 2021, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CACC) published the List of Dangerous Goods for Air Transport (2021) to replace its 2019 version. The List was first released in 2015 and has been updated every two years.

Contents

The List incorporated 3,477 (compared to 3,468 in the 2019 version) common dangerous goods in air transport which can be further divided into 3 groups according to the aviation safety requirements:

  • Group 1 dangerous goods are permitted for air transport on the condition of meeting relevant provisions. These dangerous goods, amounting to 3,194 in the List, are assigned and sorted by the UN sequence numbers or ID numbers.

  • Group 2 dangerous goods are prohibited from air transport in normal circumstances but could be carried by air if they meet relevant requirements. There are 2 kinds of such dangerous goods and they are not assigned a UN number.

  • Group 3 dangerous goods are prohibited from air transport under any circumstances, as indicated in the columns of “class or division”, “subsidiary risk” and “packing group”. There are 281 such entries sorted by alphabetical order of the English names as they are not assigned a UN number. (Notably, in addition to the listed ones, any substances which are explosive, highly reactive, and flammable or emit heat or toxic, corrosive or flammable gas or steam are forbidden to be transported by air under any circumstances.)
