Regulatory Affairs
July 26, 2021

The Ministère de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques and the California Air Ressources Board will hold the joint carbon market auction on September 21, 2021. 

Transport Canada continues its work on revising the former TP14877 standard and reverting it back to its status as a Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) National Standard of Canada. TP14877 is a standard for “Containers for Transportation of Dangerous Goods by Rail”. (See previous story here.)

As members are aware, on June 8, 2021, the Ontario Ministry of Environment Conservation and Parks posted the final Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) regulation (O. Reg.449/21) under the Resources Recovery and Circular Economy Act.

The CPA is still seeking your feedback on the implications of Transport Canada’s proposed fee hike for container requalification facilities. Instead of issuing a separate invoice for services rendered, as what is currently taking place, TC is intending to charge a flat rate (see previous story here).

The CPA encourages you to send in your Pressure Relief Valve samples for our study of CG-7 PRVs and their possible use beyond the mandated 10-year replacement interval (see previous story here).
