Dangerous Goods Excellence Programme
WFS is committed to being ‘Best-in-class’ in reducing Dangerous Goods (DG) risk to customer airlines.
A new set of DG standards has been developed based on IATA DGR as a minimum standard, and going beyond IATA in areas where it is felt that risk could be reduced further.
It contains 55 standards covering Acceptance, Storage, Build-up, Training, DG by Road (ADR) and Emergency Response. Examples of WFS requirements which go beyond IATA are 4-eyes checks of DG build-up, and stickering of held shipments.
The new standards were rolled out in the EMEAA region in April 2022 with the Americas to follow by the end of 2023.
