Transport Canada launches Client Identification Database for dangerous goods – Truck News

The federal government has launched new registration requirements and a Client Identification Database to reduce risks associated with dangerous goods.

These new requirements will give Transport Canada more current, accurate, and complete information about people or organizations involved in transporting dangerous goods, according to a news release.

Under these new regulations, which came into force Nov. 3, people and organizations must use the database to provide information regarding dangerous goods they are importing, offering for transport, handling, or transporting. They must also provide information about sites where dangerous goods are being imported, offered for transport, handled, or transported.

This information must be updated annually. Existing organizations and sites must be registered in the Client Identification Database by Oct. 25.

After the Client Identification Database has been in place for one year, penalties may be imposed for non-compliance, up to and including criminal prosecution for extreme or repeated infractions. Transport Canada inspectors may issue fines of up to $1,000 for non-compliance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.
