Dear Customers,


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation for flight safety.

The amendments of 49CFR (US Regulations) published on October 19, 2009 and September 1, 2010 will be effective from October 1, 2010. Those amendments include the following new requirements for emergency response telephone number on the Shipper’s Declaration.


Those requirements are applicable to transport of dangerous goods to/from/through USA unless otherwise excepted in 49CFR.

Emergency response telephone number:

1. The emergency response telephone number must include area code and if the emergency

     telephone number is located outside USA, the international access code or the “+” sign, country

     code, and city code as appropriate, must be included; and

2. When the shipper is same as emergency response information provider (ERI provider), the

    emergency response telephone number must be entered on the shipper’s declaration

    (Example 1). And in addition to the above emergency response telephone number, the name of

    the person or department responsible for emergency response information may be added

    immediately before, after, above or below the emergency response telephone number

    (Example 2 and 3).

    Examples:

        1) Emergency contact: +81-3-1234-5678

         And in addition to the emergency response telephone number and the name of the ERI

         provider, the person who is registered with the ERI provider may be identified by name, contract

         number or other unique identifier assigned by the ERI provider, on the shipper’s declaration

         immediately before, after, above or below the emergency response telephone number (Example

             (which is registered with the ERI provider).

         4) Emergency Contact: 310-1234-5678 (the name of ERI provider) / Contract number 3456


    (2) If the ERI provider has a contract with third party (other than the shipper, the shipper has no

         direct contract with the ERI provider), the emergency response telephone number and the name

         of the ERI provider must be entered on the shipper’s declaration.


         And in addition to the emergency response telephone number, the person who is registered with

         the ERI provider must be identified by name, contract number or other unique identifier

         assigned by the ERI provider, on the shipper’s declaration immediately before, after, above or

         below the emergency response telephone number unless the name or identifier is entered

         elsewhere on the shipper’s declaration in a prominent, readily identifiable, and clearly visible   

         manner that allows the information to be easily and quickly found.
