ICAO released amendments to the 2021-2022 Edition of the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air relating to the containment of COVID-19. One of the amendments aims to facilitate the transport of vaccines, by making them not subject to the requirement for authorization as dangerous goods despite containing a specific ingredient that would ordinarily make them subject to such. The same has also been done for data loggers and cargo tracking devices needed to monitor the temperature and location of vaccines during transport that are powered by lithium batteries.
