Regulatory Proposals under Development

  • CAN/CGSB-43.125 Packaging of Infectious Substances, Diagnostic Specimens, Biological Products and Biomedical Waste for Transport.

    The Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) has released the proposed draft of the National Standard of Canada for Packaging of Category A and Category B infectious substances (Class 6.2) and clinical and (bio) medical waste -, CAN/CGSB-43.125 Packaging of Category A and Category B infectious substances (Class 6.2) and clinical and (bio) medical waste. Once the proposed standard is finalized and published, we will propose an amendment to the TDG Regulations to incorporate by reference this latest version.

    The Standards Council of Canada requires all proposed draft standards be made available for a period of 60 days for public review during the development process, to allow input from interested parties.  The period of public review will be open for comments until July 13, 2015.

    To request a copy of the proposed draft standard, please contact CGSB
