In Canada, transporting dangerous goods is regulated very closely. ‘Dangerous Goods’ includes a wide variety of materials, from chemicals to everyday items like camera batteries. Ordering, shipping, and receiving dangerous goods requires specific training.
What This Means in UBC Mechanical Engineering
- If you want to directly order materials classified as ‘Dangerous Goods’ you are required to take Transportation of Dangerous Good Training.
- If you do not have a valid TDG certificate (they expire), you should order dangerous goods through ECE Stores or Mech Finance.
- Regardless of who orders the materials, all dangerous goods should be received through ECE Stores to ensure we are compliant with current Transport Canada regulations.
