New UN Numbers and ERAPS

The requirement for an ERAP is set out in Section 7 of the TDG Act, which then leads one to the Regulations. The Regulations set out how a person can classify any substance and subsequently choose the appropriate shipping name in Schedule 1. Subsection 7.1(12) indicates that should an ERAP be required when a substance is classified in accordance with Part 2, Classification, of the Regulations, then an ERAP is required even if a UN number and shipping name not included in Schedule 1 is used by virtue of reciprocity or harmonization provisions of the Act or regulations.

Schedule 1 in the TDG Regulations is currently aligned with the 11th Edition of the UN Recommendations. Currently, the last UN number in Schedule 1 is UN3475. The last UN number in the 17th Edition of the UN Recommendations is UN3506. Obviously, some new UN numbers have been added to the UN Recommendations in the 12th to the 17th Editions. The majority of the new UN numbers resulted from dividing into two separate entries with different UN numbers, shipping names that included liquids and solids or in streamlining the lists of Class 4 and Class 5 dangerous goods. Consequently, as far as the application of the ERAP requirements are concerned, if the dangerous goods described under the "old" UN number required an ERAP then the dangerous goods described under new UN numbers also require an ERAP.

Section 1.10 of the TDG Regulations allow the use of the appropriate classification in the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or the UN Recommendations to transport dangerous goods within Canada by road, rail or ship on a domestic voyage if the dangerous goods are not forbidden for transport in the TDG Regulations, the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or the UN Recommendations.

Questions concerning ERAPS may be directed to the applicable Remedial Measures Specialist.

The list of new UN numbers that require an ERAP is included below with their ERAP index.
