Regulations amending certain regulations made under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992 (Part 12 and International Harmonization Update), (246 pages, available in English and French).
The Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992 (Part 12 and International Harmonization Update) [the proposed Regulations] would incorporate changes and new requirements adopted in the 22nd edition of the United Nations Model Regulations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN Recommendations) and the 2020 edition of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code). Associated changes to the proposed Regulations would include amendments to dangerous goods safety marks, classification information, shipping names, and packaging requirements. The proposed Regulations would include updates to Canadian standards that are incorporated by reference, to better align with the UN Recommendations for the design, manufacture, and use of means of containment. The proposed Regulations would also allow the use of dangerous goods safety marks prescribed under Title 49 of the United States (U.S.) Code of Federal Regulations (U.S. 49 CFR) and special permits issued in the United States for the transportation of dangerous goods across North America by road and railway vehicles. Finally, the proposed Regulations would rewrite Part 12 of the TDGR to clarify air transportation requirements and update provisions for transport to remote locations and exemptions for medical, scientific, industrial, aerial and enforcement activities to reflect current domestic needs.
