Opinion: Proposed rules could change markings on dangerous goods

Transport Canada has proposed a series of amendments to existing Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR), as it looks to align with the 20th edition of the United Nations Model Regulations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. The end results will likely affect classification information, shipping names, and other special provisions, and better align with U.S. regulations when it comes to the safety marks on dangerous goods.
