In 1953 the Member airlines of IATA recognized the growing need to transport by air, articles and substances having hazardous properties which, if controlled, could adversely affect the safety of the passengers, crew and/or aircraft on which they are carried. Experience in other modes of transportation had demonstrated that most such articles and substances could be carried safely provided that the article or substance was properly packed and the quantities of each package were properly limited.
