The NOTOC form is to advise the Captain details and loading locations of the dangerous goods and other temperature sensitive (special care) items loaded aboard the aircraft.?iDGR 18.104.22.168?j As there are certain safety rules with each country as well as with each airline, the NOTOC form is not fixed.?iDGR 22.214.171.124.3?j In the IATA Airport Handling Manual?iAHM?j, there is a model NOTOC form however each airline designs their own form. Minimum required entries are shown in DGR 126.96.36.199.1(a) through (i). Language is not confined to English but May be entered in the local language.?iDGR 188.8.131.52.7?j.
Each airline stipulates in their own operations manual who should prepare the NOTOC, who should sign and who should handle. It is, of course, desirable that qualified persons prepare, sign and handle the NOTOC form but since overall airline knowledge is required, NOTOC May be prepared, signed and handled by certain person as designated by individual airlines. Most common is the supervisor on duty of the Operations department.
