Canada Adds 14 Technical Standards to TDGR
Referencing these industry standards in the regulations will allow hazmat shippers and carriers to use the most recent version of these codes and standards, without necessitating constant updates to the regulations.
Hazardous materials shipments impacted by the newly incorporated codes and standards include:
Standards the Impact Specific Materials
- Aerosols and gas cartridges (CGSB-43.123)
- Category A and B infections substances and medical waste (CGSB-43.125)
- Explosives (CGSB-43.151)
Transport Canada also incorporated into the TDGR some hazardous materials standards that influence the design, manufacture, and selection of hazmat packaging, bulk containers, and cargo tanks.
Hazmat Packaging, Cylinder, and Tank Standards
These include: Design, manufacture and use of IBCs for the transport of DG classes 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 and 9 (CGSB-43.146), Reconditioning, remanufacture, and repair of drums for transport of DG (CSGB-43.126), Portable tank Specification TC 44 (CSA-B626), and Selection and use of cylinders, spheres, tubes, and other containers for the transport of DG (CSA B340).

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.

Lion's course was superior to others I have taken in the past. Very clear in the presentation and the examples helped to explain the content presented.
