Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Department of Transport is proposing changes to outdated marine provisions in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDG Regulations) and issued Regulations Amending the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (Marine Provisions), which were published in Part 1 of the Canada Gazette on April 1, 2017.

The TDG Regulations currently refer to terms and definitions that are no longer in the Canada Shipping Act, 2001 (CSA 2001) or in regulations made under the CSA 2001, such as the Cargo, Fumigation and Tackle Regulations (CFTR) and the Vessel Certificates Regulations. In addition, there are other differences between the TDG Regulations and the CFTR, which pose challenges for regulatees. Transport Canada is seeking feedback to the proposed amendments until May 1, 2017. CPA members, please view The Grid for details. The final amendment will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II.
