Do I need to actually test a package that only needs to be "capable" of passing drop tests?

The one true way to show capability is to actually perform the drop test. This can be done internally and documented and does need to be performed every two years.

I have a packaged product that is liquid in a container that doesn’t meet pressure capability. Can I ship this product by air without repackaging?

Yes. The regulations allow for containers containing liquids that do not meet the pressure requirements to be packaged inside other containers to do.

When shipping a liquid dangerous good by air the primary container must be capable of passing an internal pressure differential of 95 KPA.
