A spaceflight operator may only load dangerous goods onto a launch vehicle, or permit a vehicle to carry such goods, if the terms of their licence permits them to do so.

Operators will be required to prepare a list of all dangerous goods onboard the vehicle or carry aircraft.

When applying for a licence, where dangerous goods are involved, you may be required to provide classification documents, such as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and/or Competent Authority Document (CAD – for the carriage of Class 1 Explosives). In addition, personnel dealing with dangerous goods should have training commensurate with their responsibility.
