New Requirements for Transportation of Dangerous Goods

Free Webinar

Transport Canada has introduced a new requirement in which organizations engaged in the transportation of dangerous goods (TDG) must register with Transport Canada. The Client Identification Database (CID) will be used by Transport Canada to better assess risk, enhance overall safety measures, and facilitate effective communication and collaboration between Transport Canada and registered persons or organizations.

Those who import, offer for transport, handle or transport dangerous goods at a site they own or operate in Canada have until October 6, 2024, to be registered in the database. This new requirement will impact almost all industrial radiography companies transporting type A or B packages.

Join IR for a free half hour webinar on Monday, April 29th, at 12:30 PM MST to learn about the new regulations and the registration requirements for industrial radiography companies. Reserve your spot by registering online here.
