Emirates SkyCargo aims to streamline DG processes through new partnership

Emirates SkyCargo and the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority(DCAA)  will work together to streamline processes for the transportation of dangerous goods (DGs).

Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), 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”.

They said this will complement the information that is already provided as part of the DG Declaration submitted to the DCAA.

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

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 streamline processes for transport of DGs 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 airfreight.”
