Note regarding Technical Standards Documents and Test Methods

The Technical Standards Documents have been temporarily removed from the Transport Canada website due to non-compliance with the Government of Canada Standard on Web Accessibility. Transport Canada is currently revising the documents to ensure they are compliant with the Standard. As each document is made compliant, it will be made available on the website. An “R” will be added to the revision number for a TSD or to the Date of a Test Method to distinguish that it is the reformatted version.

While this work takes place, the documents are being made available for downloading from the Transport Canada Secure File Transfer (SFT) server. To request access to the SFT server, or for more information, please contact
