Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate allows the applicant to carry dangerous goods in non-specification portable tanks that are not in compliance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. The equivalent level of safety is achieved by adapting an existing highway tank specification to apply to a portable tank as outlined by the conditions of this certificate. When this certificate (permit) was first issued in 1999, there was no portable tank specification available for refrigerated liquefied gases. The TC11 portable tank specification was developed and adopted in CSA B620. Since new tanks can be constructed to this TC11 specification and there has been ample time to identify any existing tanks to be covered by this certificate, no further tanks will be added to the list in Appendix A.
