Fri, 04/05/2019 - 18:59

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) has amended the Transport Canada Standard (TP 14877), Containers for Transport of Dangerous Goods by Rail. The amendment will be incorporated into the 2018 edition of the regulations by reference. The changes aim to consolidate and clarify standards; allow the use of certain new technologies and best management practices; align TDGR with U.S. and International regulations where appropriate; and reduce the risk of transporting toxic inhalation hazard (TIH) standards by rail. Overall, the amendment is expected to reduce safety risks during the transport of dangerous goods by rail, while saving stakeholders upwards of $191 million between 2021-2068.
