Some airlines have specific operational variations. These variations identify unique requirements specific to that particular airline and are always more restrictive than the DGR. FedEx, for example, has very specific documentation requirements and shippers should be aware of these variations. These regulations are amended every two years with each amendment valid for three years. The IMDG Code requires a declaration from the consignor stating that the particular dangerous goods declared are identified, classified, packaged, marked, labeled and placarded correctly. A declaration from the person packing the container is also required to ensure it has been done so correctly.
