Transport Canada (TC) amended the reporting requirements found in PART 8 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations for incidents involving Dangerous Goods Shipments on June 1, 2016. The amendments change the focus of TC’s reporting requirements for releases or anticipated releases of dangerous goods from a simple volume based approach to a circumstantial – outcome based reporting system that will provide TC better information on incidents involving Dangerous Goods. They also bring into regulation specific security requirements for reporting specified lost or stolen dangerous goods.
By December 1, 2016 carriers required to report incidents involving Dangerous Goods must follow the new reporting structure. The English Language session will run from 1:30 to 2:30 pm (EST). Members can register free of cost by visiting here.
If you have any questions about the new regulations please contact Nicole Sinclair at email@example.com or call 306.569.9696.
