Dangerous goods by air - revalidation training certificates - temporary exemption due to the coronavirus
On 31 March 2020, in recognition of the problems facing industry during the current Covid-19 epidemic, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) issued a temporary exemption from the 2 year deadline for recurrent dangerous goods training.
It provides for CAA approved recurrent training and testing to be delayed until the end of November 2020 (or earlier if the exemption is revoked before this date).
On 15 April 2020 the CAA replaced the original exemption with a revised version which clarified conditions relating to its application. A copy is attached here for your information.
During the period of the exemption employers must continue to ensure personnel are aware of their safety obligations and remain competent to perform their duties.
