Transport Canada’s New Online CANUTEC Registration System

The shippers (consignors) of dangerous goods in Canada as per Section 3.5 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations have to include an emergency telephone number on the transport document. Those consignors can now register online to use the free 24-hour emergency telephone number provided by the Canadian Transport Emergency Centre (CANUTEC). Registering with CANUTEC allows shippers to use the free number and makes the Centre’s technical assistance available in the event of an incident.
