Clarification of the definition of the terms " active fire suppression " and "forestry" as used in Section 12.12 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations
This Commercial and Business Aviation Advisory Circular (CBAAC) advises air operators what is included in the terms "active fire suppression" and " forestry " as used in Section 12.12 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.
This CBAAC applies to all Commercial Operators under Subparts 702, 703, 704 and 705 of the Canadian Aviation Regulations.
Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations, Section 12.12.
The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) governs the transport of dangerous goods by all modes of transport to, from and within Canada.
Section 12.12 of the TDGR specifies the requirements for the safe transport of dangerous goods in aerial operations such as "active fire suppression" and "forestry".
The clarification of these terms eliminates the need for air operators conducting "active fire suppression" and "forestry" activities in accordance with Section 12.12 of the TDGR, and within the parameters of these definitions, to obtain a new or use an existing Permit for Equivalent Level for Safety on this issue.
This CBAAC will remain in effect until rescinded.
