Canada’s Proposed Dangerous Goods Regulations Amendments

On March 10. 2012, proposed amendments to Canada’s Transportation Dangerous Goods Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette.  The proposed changes include:

  • A change in the definition of “person” and the addition of a definition for “organization” which aligns the TDG Regulations with the TDG Act, 1992;
  •             A clarification of packaging requirements for outer packaging for aerosols in small quantities;
  •             A more precise indication of filling requirements for standardized and non-standardized means of containment;
  •             The option of affixing dangerous goods safety marks required by IMDG Code for the transport to or from a ship, harbor or sea terminal;
  •             Editorial changes.
