Placarding of road vehicules in Canada

November 18th 2015

Since amendment SOR 2014-159 came into force January 1, 2015, Transport Canada interpreted Article 4.16.1 Placarding Exemption for Dangerous Goods having a gross mass of 500 kg or less as follows:

The “gross mass of dangerous goods“, includes all dangerous goods including even those exempted in part 1 of TDGR (i.e. Limited quantities) to determine if a vehicle was required to display placards or not.

EZ-Ship softwares, and other regulatory specialists, disagreed with this interpretation as it presented a significant contradiction with the 49CFR (US regulations), which does not include limited quantities in determining the display of placards on a road vehicle.

After several discussions with Ottawa, EZ-Ship softwares requested a revision to the interpretation. Transport Canada officially repealed the first interpretation and confirms that dangerous goods in limited quantities are not included in the calculation of 500 kg threshold for placarding.
