Protective Direction 36
We would like to inform you that the Minister of Transport, in accordance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992, issued Protective Direction (PD) 36, effective April 28, 2016, which replaces the existing PD 32.
This Protective Direction enhances PD 32 in three main areas:
1) Increased data requirements, including specific maximum volume of dangerous goods transported, frequency, and data reporting requirements;
2) Confidentiality agreements adding more flexibility to enable better sharing amongst emergency planners within municipalities; and
3) Public information; requiring rail carriers to share information that could be disclosed publicly.
This PD provides jurisdictions with appropriate dangerous goods information needed to conduct their risk assessments, emergency planning activities, and identify training requirements for First Responders by adding new requirements to the ones covered in PD 32.
We thank you in advance for your collaboration in disseminating and implementing this Protective Direction.
