Emirates SkyCargo and DCAA Sign MoU for Transport of Dangerous Goods

Emirates SkyCargo and the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority have signed an MoU to streamline processes for the transportation of Dangerous Goods (DG).

Under the terms of the agreement, the two entities will work together to strengthen mechanisms to proactively share information on certain classes of DG booked for transport on Emirates SkyCargo through Dubai. This will complement the information that is already provided as part of the Dangerous Goods Declaration submitted to the DCAA as part of the approval process for the transportation of goods classified as DG in accordance with IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

The MoU was signed by Mohammed Abdulla Lengawi, Executive Director, Aviation Security and Accidents Investigation Sector, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Budoor Al Maazmi, Emirates Cargo Government Business Development Manager in the presence of Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.

The MoU also aims to develop an approval process for transporting such cargo, creating better efficiency and reducing wait-times pre transportation.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo, said: “We are delighted to be stepping up our cooperation with the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority for the coordination of information sharing and best practices around the transport of Dangerous Goods. Safety is one of the key operational pillars for Emirates and through this agreement, we will work closely with the authorities to ensure that our DG operations are efficient and comply with all safety requirements.”

Mr. Mohammed Abdulla Lengawi, Executive Director, Aviation Security, and Accident Investigation Sector, DCAA, said: “We are pleased to cooperate with Emirates SkyCargo through the signing of the MOU which will link the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority system with that of Emirates SkyCargo and contribute to streamlining processes for the transport of Dangerous Goods making it easier for customers including air freight agents to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for transporting the goods. We have issued over 26,090 NOCs through the DCAA system between 2018 and 2020. The memorandum ensures safety and a high degree of quality in the field for transporting dangerous goods, which serves various fields of work globally, as Dubai represents a strategic location and a logistical centre for air freight.”
