Transport Canada has published an amendment entitled “Regulations Amending the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (Registration database)” in Part I of the Canada Gazette (CGI) on June 25, 2022 for a 70-day comment period. The amendment is accessible through the following URL:

The proposed amendment includes updates to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) to require that persons who handle, offer for transport, transport, or import (HOTI) dangerous goods be registered in a new registration database, when applicable, and provide contact/site information as well as information on the dangerous goods being handled, offered for transport, transported or imported at their facilities.

The Government of Canada is transitioning to a new feature in CGI that is meant to facilitate submitting comments on proposed regulations and to heighten transparency and accountability of the Canadian regulatory consultation process. The new feature allows online submission of comments on regulatory proposals; comments are published on the Canada Gazette website at the end of the consultation period.
