On March 27, 2020, ANAC published the Ordinance issued by the Operational Standards Superintendence (“SPO”), authorizing the transportation of dangerous goods cargo UN 3373 (Biological substance, Category B/laboratory exams), for a period of 180 (one hundred and eighty) days, by an operator certified under RBAC No. 135 (air cab companies), due to the urgency of the fight against the pandemic and the high capillarity possessed by these operators who are present in all Brazilian regions. Therefore, this Ordinance allowed the facilitation of the certification process for the transportation of laboratory tests, as required by Article 21 of the Brazilian Aeronautical Code.

Operators who adopt the procedure for operation under the authorization issued pursuant to the Ordinance have a period of twenty (20) days from the start of the operation to declare it to the SPO by electronic protocol, as provided in Resolution 520 of July 3, 2019. In addition, the operators must follow the policies and procedures determined by the legislation in force. ANAC has also issued a notice to shippers and laboratories that they must follow the guidelines brought in by Supplemental Instruction (“IS”) 175-004.

On April 10, 2020, ANAC published the list of air cab companies authorized to provide the specialized cargo, dangerous goods and aeromedical service with their respective categories, as well as their states, addresses and telephone numbers. This list can be seen HERE.

On April 13, 2020, ANAC released the list of authorized teaching entities, until May 15, 2020, to teach the dangerous goods course in the distance learning modality, not being necessary any homologation action by the regulatory agency, just follow the rules provided in RBAC 175 and IS 175-002.

The list can be accessed here.

On the same day, ANAC also informed the suspension of the hazardous goods accreditation activity until April 30, 2020, with the possibility of a new extension. The measure was adopted due to the reduction in the offer of flights and the prevention of crowds, since for the accreditation it is necessary to take theoretical and practical tests in person at the ANAC Regional Unit in Rio de Janeiro. All exams scheduled on or after March 7, 2020 will be rescheduled.
