    • Provincial and Territorial TDG Inspectors
    • Inspectors from other programs
      (e.g., inspectors for the Explosives Act)
  • Regulated industry
    • consignors
    • carriers
    • importers and exporters
    • manufacturers
    • users
  • General Public and those who serve the public

    • public
  • Other Stakeholders
    • Insurers
    • Environmentalists
    • Secondary transformation industry

All comments on the application of the TDG Act will be considered.  Comments dealing with the TDG Regulations or other legislation will be forwarded to the appropriate program.

When we reviewed the old TDG Act (1990-1992), hundreds of comments had been received up to the end of Step 1.  Some dated back to the early 80’s.
