Canada Adds 14 Technical Standards to TDGR

Posted on 8/7/2017 by Roger Marks

Last month, Transport Canada amended its hazmat/dangerous goods transport regulations (TDGR) to incorporate 14 “ambulatory references” or “direct references” to national safety codes and standards.

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.

Standards the Impact Specific Materials 

Hazardous materials shipments impacted by the newly incorporated codes and standards include:

Hazmat Packaging, Cylinder, and Tank Standards

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.

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).

See the full list of 14 ambulatory references incorporated into Canada’s TDGR here.

See the text of the Amendment to the TDGR here.

Stakeholders have six months, starting  on July 12, 2017, to comply with the latest version of the standards incorporated into the TDGR. During that six month period, stakeholders may comply with the version referenced in the TDGR before this amendment was published.
