Transport Canada announced the launch of new registration requirements and a Client Identification Database to prioritize public safety during the handling and transportation of dangerous goods. The government will gather more comprehensive and up-to-date information about those involved in dangerous goods transportation. These regulations, effective immediately, mandate that relevant individuals and organizations must regularly update information about the dangerous goods they import, offer for transport, handle, or transport, as well as details about the relevant sites. The newly established Client Identification Database serves as an online platform for registration. Non-compliance may result in penalties, including potential criminal prosecution for severe or repeated violations, once the database has been operational for one year. Inyterested parties are encouraged to check whether registration is required and complete the registration process here if needed by October 6, 2024.
