Explanatory Note

The applicant, in justifying the need for the certificate, stated that they have installed a hydraulic car mover at their facility. This mover has hydraulic mover dogs which, when applied, prevent the tank cars being loaded from moving. The appropriate use of these "dogs", as described in the conditions of this certificate, provides an equivalent level of safety to that of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.
