CASA 22/19 — Dangerous Goods (Law Enforcement Devices on Commercial Flights) Permission 2019

Officer: Is that a Taser in your pocket or are you just excited to be travelling?

The IATA DGR and ICAO TI forbid the carriage of electro shock weapons (tasers) and disabling devices (capsicum spray) in check-in or carry-on baggage. However in Australia, police officers may need such equipment when travelling for work. Before 08 April 2019, air operators needed to apply for individual CASA approvals to allow officers tasers and capsicum spray when required for official travel. However, with the introduction of CASA 22/19 — Dangerous Goods (Law Enforcement Devices on Commercial Flights) Permission 2019 CASA have introduced a blanket permission to save operators time and money and to allow operators the flexibility to accept, with certain controls, law enforcement officers to lodge such equipment in check-in baggage.
