Interprovincial Movement of Hazardous Waste Regulations (SOR/2002-301)

The goal of the Interprovincial Movement of Hazardous Waste Regulations (hereinafter referred to as the Interprovincial Regulations) is to ensure that the Canadian manifest tracking and hazards classification conditions for waste, formerly set out in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations, are maintained for the interprovincial movements of hazardous wastes.

Under section 191 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Governor in Council has the authority to make regulations respecting conditions governing the movement within Canada of hazardous wastes and hazardous recyclable materials. The Interprovincial Regulations were required as a consequence of the new Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDG Regulations), made pursuant to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992. These new TDG Regulations, which came into force on August 15, 2002, no longer included provisions for manifest tracking of hazardous waste.
