Dangerous Goods Approvals

People in a meeting


At Across Safety Development, we always keep abreast of changing regulations, including those around Dangerous Goods (DG). Rules around the carriage of DGs by unmanned aircraft continue to evolve. Our deep knowledge of DG regulations has already helped operators in the UK obtain CAA approval for transporting specific categories of DG during BVLOS delivery operations.

We can also arrange CAA approved training relevant to the handling and transport of Dangerous Goods by unmanned aircraft (a prerequisite to obtaining approval to carry DGs).  The training is customised to the type and classes of Dangerous Goods that you intend to transport and whether you are ‘shipper’ or ‘operator’ of DGs.

We help you establish a capability to transport Dangerous Goods by UAV by:

  • Providing expert insight into the complex regulations and packaging requirements surrounding the transport of Dangerous Goods by UAV
  • Advising on appropriate DG policies and procedures in line with best practices
  • Working with you to produce the safety case which will support your application to carry Dangerous Goods
  • Providing CAA approved Dangerous Goods training to key staff

Speech marks

“Across Safety has provided excellent value for us when we’ve needed external support the most. Thanks to their specialist knowledge and expertise in obtaining unmanned aircraft regulatory approvals, Skyports has been able to secure BVLOS operational authorisation from the UK CAA to deploy our delivery drones for the NHS in the Scotland as part of the response to COVID-19, including becoming the first drone operator in the UK to be granted permission by the CAA to carry dangerous goods by unmanned aircraft. We cannot recommend Across Safety enough and they will continue to be our go-to unmanned aviation consultants in the future.”
