Announcement: Updates to Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations


Exactly two years ago, on this day, significant amendments were made to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations Part 2. One notable change mandates that a Consignor of Dangerous Goods must retain proof of classification documents for a duration of five years post-shipment.

What constitutes proof of classification, you might ask? It encompasses various forms, including test reports, lab reports, or any documentation noting the classification of the dangerous goods. These documents are required to include crucial details such as the date of classification, the technical name of the dangerous goods, the classification itself, and the method employed for classification under TDGR Part 2 of Chapter 2 of the UN TDG recommendations.
