VICTORIA, B.C. — When the new Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations come into effect Aug. 15, the Insurance Corp. of B.C. (ICBC) is prepared to offer some flexibility.
At the B.C. Trucking Association’s (BCTA’s) request, ICBC has agreed to make Aug. 15 to Nov. 30 a period of adjustment, and will focus on education rather then doling out harsh penalties over minor infractions.
During this period, ICBC compliance operations will focus on educational efforts and explain the new TDG rules if a violation doesn’t pose a serious risk to the public. However, ICBC stresses it will still punish violators if an infraction involves hazardous or dangerous circumstances posing a risk to public safety.
