Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the certificate holder to include the words "Poison - Inhalation Hazard" or "Toxic - Inhalation Hazard", on the shipping document immediately after the description of the dangerous goods, instead of after the shipping name of the dangerous goods as specified in Special Provision 23 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. Please note that adding the words "Zone A", "Zone B", "Zone C", or "Zone D" on the shipping document is not misleading as long as the sequence of information describing the dangerous goods on the shipping document is not broken. A modification to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) could eventually be considered to reflect these changes and authorize the words prescribed in Title 49 of the "Code of Federal Regulations" of the United States.
