Explanatory Note

The dangerous goods are part B of a 2-part resin system that is applied to the inside of deteriorated water piping for its rehabilitation. The dangerous good is a viscous solid that is heated prior for use. The application tanks and attached application equipments are specialty items that are not standardized transport containers permitted for transport of dangerous goods by the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. These tanks, pumps, fittings and hoses are robust industrial equipment intended to contain liquids but retain the dangerous goods as solid when the tank and hoses are in transport. As an additional secondary containment measure, all the equipment is contained inside a closed road vehicle or portable processing unit when in transport. This Equivalency Certificate allows the dangerous goods to be transported to and from the application sites in a safe manner.
