Industry facilities that store, manufacture, transport, recycle or handle dangerous goods, hazardous wastes, or hazardous chemicals should prepare a response (contingency) plan to respond to an accidental release of these substances into the environment. Our Environmental Professionals can help develop spills plans for timely and effective response to environmental emergencies.
Emergency Response Assistance Planning
Part 7 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act 1992, requires that before a person offers for transport or imports certain dangerous goods, the person must have an approved Emergency Response Assistance Plan (ERAP).
Part 7 and Column 7 of Schedule I of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations prescribe the dangerous goods and the concentration or quantity for which an ERAP is required.
Our Environmental Professionals can help owners and operators develop Emergency Response Assistance Plans for submission to Transport Canada.
