About

The Transport of Dangerous Goods (TDG) program promotes safety in British Columbia in conjunction with the federal TDG Program. The provincial program is limited to road transportation, while the federal program focuses on all transportation modes and the inter-jurisdictional movement of dangerous goods. Provincial regulations concerning road transportation are incorporated from the federal standard, resulting in a high degree of harmonization amongst the British Columbia, federal and other provincial requirements.

In British Columbia the transportation of dangerous goods is regulated by the Transport of Dangerous Goods Act and the Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulation.
