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 be certified via Transportation of Dangerous Good Training.
- If you do not have a valid TDG certificate (they expire), you must order dangerous goods through a TDG qualified individual (ECE Stores or Mech Finance (firstname.lastname@example.org)).
- Regardless of who orders the materials, all dangerous goods must be received through a TDG qualified receiver to ensure compliance with Transport Canada regulations.
