Overview/Description
International shipping introduces additional complexities in the transportation of dangerous goods in and out of Canada. It is important to know which country's regulations would apply in these cases. Would there be a need to satisfy several sets of regulations for one shipment? The desire to have goods move freely between countries has led to agreements between countries and the authorities regulating different modes of transport. This course explains how different jurisdictions and regulatory authorities work together to ensure the safe transport of dangerous goods in and out of Canada. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by The Pinchin Group, a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.

Target Audience
All personnel involved in the packaging, preparation, and handling of hazardous material for transportation in and out of Canada
