Stand alone manuals for:“Will Not Carry” and “Will Carry”Part 121 and 135 operators
Operators that choose not to carry hazardous materials must have a hazardous materials recognition program.HazMat - Will-Carry:$ 750.00HazMat - Will-Not-Carry:$ 750.00
Responsibility for Acceptance/ Approval, Surveillance, and Enforcement of Hazardous Materials Programs.The Office of Security and Hazardous Materials (ASH) through the Regional Hazardous Materials Branch Managers (HMBM) has oversight responsibility for an air carrier’s hazardous materials program. The HMBM is the technical expert and must evaluate all hazardous materials programs. An operator’s hazardous materials program is contained in its hazardous materials manual and includes hazardous materials training.
Procedures for Approval of Hazardous Materials Training.When a Principal Operations Inspector (POI) receives proposed or updated hazardous materials training from an operator, the POI will forward it to the HMBM. The HMBM evaluates the contents of the training and consults with the POI when necessary. Once the HMBM is satisfied with the training, the HMBM will recommend it to the POI in writing for final approval. The POI then approves the implementation of the training in accordance with 14 CFR part 135 or 121. Hazardous materials training is included in the air carrier’s hazardous materials manual. The initial approval of the training is usually done at the same time as the review and acceptance of the hazardous materials manual.
Procedures for Approval of Hazardous Materials Manuals. (See 14 CFR 135 Subpart K)As with other manuals, the hazardous materials manual is required by 14 CFR Part 121 and Part 135 and must be accepted by the POI. However, POIs must not accept this manual until the HMBM has evaluated it and recommended it for acceptance. When a POI receives a hazardous materials manual for review from an air carrier, the POI will forward it to the HMBM. The HMBM will review the contents of the manual and consult with the POI when necessary. Once the HMBM is satisfied with the manual, the HMBM will recommend it to the POI in writing for acceptance. Only then may the POI accept the manual.Our Hazardous Materials Manual includes an “Acceptance Page” that must be signed by two company officers, the FAA HazMat Inspector and your POI. Our manuals can be approved very quickly if the acceptance page is signed by the operator. E-signing a PDF file can be confusing sometimes.Please see our How2 page to learn how to quickly and easily sign the acceptance page in the HazMat Manual.
Our Hazardous Materials Operations and Training manuals are designed to be a supplement to any Part 135 or 121 General Operations Manual and Training Program. Our manuals have been approved in every Flight Standards Region in the nation and many ICAO nations around the world with virtually no changes. Having a Hazardous Materials Operations and Training Program that is supplemental to your Operations Manual makes updating and revision almost painless.Call 530-PART135 (530-727-8135) to order your Hazardous Materials Operations and Training Program.
Training for Air Carriers.
In general, the FAA requires two types of training programs for operators: one for part 121 and part 135 operators electing to transport dangerous goods (will-carry certificate holders), and the other for part 121 and part 135 operators electing not to transport dangerous goods (will-not carry certificate holders).Will-carry certificate holders must conduct in-depth training for persons directly supervising or performing any of the following job functions involving items for transport on aircraft: acceptance, rejection, handling, storage incidental to transport, packaging of company materials owned or used by the certificate holder (known as COMAT), and loading.Will-not-carry certificate holders are required to conduct training sufficient to enable the persons directly supervising or performing certain job functions to identify material marked or labeled as dangerous goods, or material that is not marked or labeled as dangerous goods but possesses indicators that it might contain dangerous goods. Some possible indicators of dangerous goods include a hazard label or caution statement on the package with no accompanying shipping documentation, a notation such as "flammable paint," without proper shipping paper declarations or labels or markings.Guidance for the development of HazMat programs comes from FSIMS 8900.1 Volume 2, Chapter 2 Section 6. We also use "Guide to Developing a Hazardous Materials Training Program" published by the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
