China will ban the air-freighting of dangerous goods to Olympic host cities during the Games, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said.

Airlines will be prohibited from carrying explosives for civil use, guns and ammunition to the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenyang, Qinhuangdao and Qingdao from Jul. 1 to Sep. 30, the administration said in a statement on its website.

Other hazardous materials, with the exception of some items for public health and medical uses, would also be banned, it said.

Flights carrying high-risk chemicals, such as poisonous gas and radioactive substances, to other cities must be inspected and authorized by the administration. Those with dangerous goods that are urgently needed by the state or in disaster relief work must go through the same process and be recorded, said the statement.

Foreign air carriers will not be subject to the restrictions on dangerous goods transport announced earlier this month, according to advice received by the International Air Transport Association from civil aviation authorities in China.

Chinese authorities have been considering shipping security and bans on certain manufacturing activities in and around cities active in the upcoming Beijing Olympic Games, with U.S. shippers and carriers struggling to make sense of partial and sometimes conflicting instructions from national, regional and local agencies.

Foreign airlines must still obtain Foreign Carrier Operation Certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

Various documentations will still be required for the transportation of certain higher-risk medical products and components.
