What is it and what does it mean for me?
For those of us who feel a little left in the dark about the looming International Air Transport Association (IATA) Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) and when it starts, it is our understanding that there is a 2-year transitional period. During this time the CBTA MAY be applied against the 2020 DGR if the Department of Transportation (DOT) agrees as the competent authority in the United States. Again, it is our understanding this means transporters have until January 2023 to fully switch to the CBTA method of training. During the transitional period, transporters may do either competency based training or traditional IATA training. With that being said, this is our understanding based on guidance from our source close to the subject matter. Stay tuned to Transportation Compliance Associates, Inc. for all your hazardous materials transportation and safety needs as we will continually update our understanding if anything changes.
