Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the transportation of dangerous goods that are included in Class 3, Packing Group II or Packing Group III, in means of containment that do not comply with the requirements set out in Part 5, Means of Containment, of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. The means of containment may contain residual amounts of dangerous goods due to storage, processing or use of dangerous goods at fixed locations. They must be emptied to the maximum extent possible prior to being transported. Any means of containment permanently mounted on a truck chassis or trailer, such as a highway tank, is considered to be intended for transportation and is not covered by this Equivalency Certificate.

The Transport Dangerous Goods Directorate has revised its policy on the transportation of non-specification means of containment. Over the past few years, Equivalency Certificates have been issued to authorize the use of non-specification tanks for the transportation of fuels. These Equivalency Certificates were required when no existing specification referenced in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations were adequate for a particular use.


Equivalency Certificate

(Approval issued by the competent authority of Canada)

SU 11227 (Ren. 1)

Two new standards have recently been adopted in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. These standards are CSA Standard B625-08, "Portable tanks for the transport of dangerous goods", July 2008 and CSA Standard B626-09, "Portable tanks specification TC 44", February 2009. With these two new standards, there are now several options available for the transportation of fuel in specification tanks:

1) Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) having a volume of 5 000 L or less under National Standard of Canada CAN/CGSB-43.146-2002, "Design, Manufacture and Use of Intermediate Bulk Containers for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods", January 2002;

2) Portable tanks having a volume of more than 450 L under CSA Standard B625-08, "Portable tanks for the transport of dangerous goods", July 2008;

3) Portable tanks of specification TC 44 having a volume of 3 000 L or more under CSA Standard B626-09, "Portable tank specification TC 44", February 2009.

The Transport Dangerous Goods Directorate has revised its policy on the issuance of certificates for the use of tanks which are not authorized for the transportation of fuels. It has determined that after January 1st, 2020, the use of non-specification tanks to transport fuels will no longer be authorized. Users of non-specification mobile tanks should therefore consider replacing their tanks with standardized tanks built to specifications authorized by the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.

This certificate will not be renewed beyond January 1st, 2020.
