Canada plans to increase reporting requirements for hazmat transport

AMENDMENTS to Canadian regulations on the transport of dangerous goods will increase reporting requirements and expand data collection, announced Transport Minister Lisa Raitt. 

This additional information would allow Transport Canada to establish tighter regulations, said the federal government statement.

New reporting requirements would also be put in place for dangerous goods incidents involving road vehicles, aircraft, airports, and air cargo facilities, allowing the department to obtain more information.

Amendments would require additional information for the initial telephone report to the Canadian Transport Emergency Centre (CANUTEC) following an incident.

It would add new requirements for the 30-day written report to improve the data available for emergency response and risk analysis and add a new requirement for reporting lost or stolen dangerous goods.

It would adopt the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) reporting requirements for dangerous goods that are either incorrectly declared or undeclared.

Amendments would allow Transport Canada to require information regarding releases or anticipated releases of dangerous goods that endanger public safety.
