CHAPTER -1

INTRODUCTION TO DG SURVEILLANCE AUDIT

India is a contracting state to the Convention of International Civil Aviation and a

member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has an obligation to

promote the safe, orderly and efficient operation of aviation activities. To meet state

obligations, DGCA has laid down national regulations to ensure compliance with various

Standard & Recommended Practices laid down by ICAO in Annexes to the Convention.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is a regulatory body dealing mainly with

safety issues. DGCA is also responsible for regulation of air transport services

to/from/within India and for enforcement of civil air regulations, airworthiness and air

safety.

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has developed a system of surveillance to

ensure continuing organizational, as well as individual, professional competency of

licence/rating/certificate/approval holders, continuing capacity to maintain a safe and

regular operation by air operators and service providers and continuing capacity to

properly maintain aviation related Aircraft Maintenance Organizations and other areas

such as Dangerous Goods, Aerodromes and Air Navigation Services.

The purpose of the Surveillance is to help DGCA to understand the state of compliance

of the audited organizations and to identify corrective actions that may needed to

ensure the performance of the organizations meet the regulatory requirements and

safety standards.

In order to effectively implement the Surveillance Programme, a Division within DGCA

for Dangerous Goods has been established under the control of Chief Inspector-

Dangerous Goods. The Office of the Chief Inspector is located in DGCA- Headquarters in

New Delhi.

To carry out the Surveillance in a scheduled and organized manner, specialists in the

field of Dangerous Goods from the industry and service providers have been appointed as

DG Inspectors. These Inspectors are required to carry out the inspection of the

operators and other agencies such as shippers, freight forwarders, airport operators etc.

in order to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Aircraft (Carriage of Dangerous

Goods) Rules 2003, Technical Instructions on the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by

Air. Detailed guidelines and procedures for carry out such audits have been detailed in

this “Dangerous Goods Inspectors Handbook” which is based on Civil Aviation

Requirement, Section 11- Air Transport, Series “D” Part I, Issue III dated 08

th

January

2010.

Subject: Guidelines and Procedure for Dangerous Goods Inspections.

1. INTRODUCTION

1.1 The Aircraft (Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Rules, 2003 have been framed to give effect

to the provisions of Annex 18 to the Chicago Convention and the Technical

Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air issued by ICAO. Since

the carriage of dangerous goods by air has a direct bearing on the safety of aircraft

operations, strict compliance with these provisions is of paramount importance.

1.2 The carriage of dangerous goods is a highly skilled job, which requires proper packing,

labelling and handling etc. during various stages such as storage, loading, unloading

and transportation. As such, the responsibilities of all the agencies/personnel engaged

in the transportation of dangerous goods have been clearly defined in the Aircraft

(Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Rules, 2003.

1.3 Rule 10A of the said Rules provides that the Director General of Civil Aviation or any other

officer authorized in this behalf by the Central Government may inspect any services,

equipment, documents and records. The Central Government has authorized various

officers to enter any place and carry out the inspection.

1.4 The Dangerous Goods Inspectors are required to carry out inspection of the airline

operators as well as other agencies such as shippers, freight forwarders, airport

operators etc. in order to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Aircraft

(Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Rules, 2003 and the Technical Instructions for the

Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. Detailed guidelines and procedure for

carrying out such inspections have been laid down in this CAR.

1.5 This CAR is issued under Rule 13 of the Aircraft (Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Rules,

2003.

1.6 This CAR is issued in supersession of ‘CAR Section 3 Series ‘L’ Part II issue II dated 5th

May 2009’.

DGCA with a view to directing and controlling the Dangerous Goods

inspection/surveillance which shall be carried out by the Seconded Dangerous

Goods Inspectors attached to these offices.

2.3 A few Instructors from the approved Dangerous Goods Training Organisations have been

selected and attached to the Regional Directors/Controllers of Airworthiness for

carrying out inspection and surveillance of dangerous goods. They shall report to the

concerned Director/Controller of Airworthiness who shall coordinate with the Chief

Inspector of Dangerous Goods. These persons shall be designated as Seconded

Dangerous Goods Inspectors and shall –

i) assist the DGCA in carrying out the Dangerous Goods inspection/audit/surveillance;

Guidelines and procedure for Dangerous Goods Inspections

1. Organization and procedures

a) The aim of the inspection is to assess the suitability of the organization and

procedures established by the operator and the facilities provided for the handling of

dangerous goods, taking into account the nature and scale of the operation. If the

operator uses a handling agent, the liaison between them shall also be checked to

confirm that each knows what is expected of them by the other.

b) The inspection needs to confirm that the operator has sufficient resources for the

intended operation and has identified those individuals who have specific

responsibilities and has made them aware of their responsibilities. It shall ensure

that reference manuals are up-to-date and available to staff who need to use them.

The manner of loading and stowage on aircraft shall be checked to ensure it is

carried out according to the requirements.

c) For inspection of the organization and procedures, the form available at Attachment I

shall be used.

2. Consignment Inspection

a) The aim of checking consignments of dangerous goods shall be to determine that,

as far as can be ascertained from an external check, the packages and their

associated documents comply with the laid down requirements. It shall also

determine, as far as possible, that associated documentation (e.g. air waybill,

dangerous goods transport document, acceptance checklist, written notification to

commander) meets all applicable requirements. Inspections shall be carried out in

the operator’s or handling agent’s premises and after the dangerous goods have

been accepted for transport or whilst they are still in the care of the operator or

handling agent.

b) Both export and import consignments shall be inspected, but with more emphasis on

export consignments. If a consignment is found which does not comply with the

requirements, action shall be taken to prevent it from being loaded on an aircraft

and an investigation made into how it was offered for transport and accepted.

Although import consignments have already been carried by air, the finding of

evidence of non-compliance with the requirements shall be reported to the State

where the goods were originally loaded on an aircraft.

3. Operations Manual and other Staff Instructions

a) A check of the Operations Manual and other staff instructions should be made during

the organization and procedures inspection referred to above. The Technical

Instructions require the Operations Manual or other manuals to contain certain

information when the operator intends to carry dangerous goods. In addition to this

information, the Operations Manual needs to contain sufficient guidance material

and instructions to enable all those concerned (both ground staff and flight and

cabin crew) to meet their responsibilities. The Operations Manual inspection aims to

confirm the information provided is adequate, complete and up-to-date. It may also

be confirmed that the handling agent has copies of the relevant parts of the Manual

or other instructions concerning the operator’s policy and procedures in regard to

carriage of dangerous goods.

b) When an operator does not intend to carry dangerous goods, the Operations Manual

should still be checked to ensure it contains information about the policy of the

operator in regard to dangerous goods and instructions about the carriage of

passengers with dangerous goods.

4. Staff Training

The training inspection shall be carried out to confirm that all relevant staff of the

operator or handling agent have been trained, and also that the training has been to the

required standard and given within the required periods.

5. Training Programmes

a) Rule 12 of the Aircraft (Carriage of Dangerous Goods) Rules, 2003, provides that the

dangerous goods training programmes established by or on behalf of operators

shall be approved by the State of the operator. Inspection may be carried out to

confirm that training meets the requirements laid down in CAR Section 3 Series ‘L’

Part III.

b) An operator, depending on its size, may have several training programmes

customized to the individual responsibilities of its staff. Even if the operator does not

carry dangerous goods, there is still a need for training programmes for both

operational and ground staff dealing with passengers and their baggage.

6. Passenger warning notices

a) The Technical Instructions requires notices, warning passengers of the prohibition of

dangerous goods in baggage, to be prominently displayed and in sufficient number

so that passengers see them during their normal progression through departure

procedures. The method of inspecting notices is to check those areas in terminals

where the operator (or the handling agent) issues tickets, checks in passengers and

assembles them to board an aircraft.

7. Results of inspections

The results of a dangerous goods inspection shall be recorded so as to produce a

record of what was seen and noted at the time. The record should be sufficiently

comprehensive to identify any faults or deficiencies, since these will need to be

reflected in the letter to the operator to take remedial action which shall be completed in

the specified time frame.

8. Frequency of inspections

The Technical Instructions does not specify the frequency of such inspections.

However, the Manual of Procedures for Operations Inspection, Certification and

Continued Surveillance (Doc 8335), produced by ICAO, recommends that all significant

aspects of the operator’s procedures and practices should be inspected at least once in

every twelve-month period. As such, all aspects related to dangerous goods of an

operator engaged in the carriage of dangerous goods as cargo shall be inspected on

an annual basis. Operators choosing not to carry dangerous goods as cargo may be

inspected at least once in two years.
