Consultation meetings

Review of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992

Consultation meetings

The process for the review of the TDG Act has been arranged so that all aspects can be mediated entirely through Web interaction and electronic mail.

Participants may also use regular mail and telephone.

In addition, we are holding public consultation meetings and accepting invitations from interested groups affected by the application of the TDG Act. For example, we can give a talk or take questions during a session at their annual meeting.

Do not hesitate to invite us. Please understand, however, that our capacity to accept invitations will depend on several factors, in particular, the availability of people and resources (for example, travelling expenses).
