The federal transportation of dangerous goods laws require companies that transport or import certain dangerous goods to have emergency response assistance plans (ERAPs) to help local authorities effectively respond to incidents involving dangerous goods, such as train derailments. Companies that must comply with this requirement have to submit their ERAPs to Transport Canada for approval.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
This checklist is based on the Site Audit Report that Transport Canada officials use when assessing the sufficiency of ERAPs. Use the checklist to audit your ERAP and identify any deficiencies before you submit it for approval. You can then address these deficiencies and improve the odds that your plan will quickly be approved.
