5 (4) and 1. 6 (2) refer to a conflict between provisions. A conflict is not the same as a difference. There is a difference between two provisions if they are not exactly the same but both can be satisfied at the same time. There is a conflict between two provisions if it is impossible for both provisions to be satisfied at the same time. For example, if Provision A requires a tank wall to exceed 1 mm in thickness and Provision B requires the same tank wall to exceed 2 mm in thickness, there is a difference between the two provisions but there is no conflict because both provisions can be satisfied at the same time if the tank wall exceeds 2 mm in thickness.

However, if Provision A prohibits a tank wall from exceeding 1 mm in thickness and Provision B requires the same tank wall to exceed 2 mm in thickness, there is a conflict between the two provisions because it is impossible for the tank wall to be less than or equal to 1 mm in thickness while at the same time exceeding 2 mm in thickness. 1. 5 Forbidden Dangerous Goods and Special Provisions Subsection (1) states that dangerous goods are forbidden for transport by any means of transport when the word "Forbidden" is shown in column 3 of Schedule 1 or column 4 of Schedule 3. Normally, dangerous goods forbidden for transport do not have a UN number and are included only in Schedule 3. However, there are 14 dangerous goods forbidden for transport that are also included in Schedule 1.

They are UN numbers UN 2249, UN 2455, UN 3097, UN 3100, UN 3121, UN 3127, UN 3133, UN 3137, UN 3255, UN 3315, UN 3319, UN 3343, UN 3344 and UN 3357. Subsection (2) refers to dangerous goods that are not completely forbidden for transport but are forbidden for transport by the means of transport indicated in the heading of column 8 or 9. (1) If the word "Forbidden" is shown for dangerous goods in column 3 of Schedule 1 or column 4 of Schedule 3, a person must not handle, offer for transport or transport the dangerous goods. (2) If the word "Forbidden" is shown for dangerous goods in column 8 or 9 of Schedule 1, a person must not handle, offer for transport or transport the dangerous goods by the means of transport set out in the heading of that column.

(3) In addition to the other requirements of these Regulations, when there is a special provision in Schedule 2 for dangerous goods, that special provision applies. (4) If there is a conflict between a special provision in Schedule 2 and other provisions in these Regulations, the special provision applies. (5) Despite subsection (4), when these Regulations do not apply to specific dangerous goods, Schedule 2 does not apply either. 1. 6 Quantity Limits in Columns 8 and 9 of Schedule 1 (1) If there is a number shown in column 8 or 9 of Schedule 1, that number is a quantity limit and a person must not handle, offer for transport or transport, by the means of transport set out in the heading of that column, a consignment of dangerous goods that exceeds the quantity limit in that column.

A consignment of dangerous goods exceeds the quantity limit when the dangerous goods (a) if a solid, have a mass that is greater than the number when that number is expressed in kilograms; (b) if a liquid, have a volume that is greater than the number when that number is expressed in livres; (c) if a gas, including a gas in a liquefied form, are contained in one or more means of containment the total water capacity of which is greater than the number when that number is expressed in livres; or (d) if an explosive, have a net explosives quantity that is greater than the number when that number is expressed in kilograms. (2) If the quantity limit in column 8 or 9 of Schedule 1 conflicts with any other quantity limit in these Regulations, the quantity limit in that column applies. (3) Despite subsection (2), when these Regulations do not apply to specific dangerous goods, the quantity limits in columns 8 and 9 of Schedule 1 do not apply either. 1. 7 Safety Requirements, Documents, Safety Marks As provided for in section 5 of the Act, a person must not handle, offer for transport, transport or import dangerous goods unless (a) the person complies with all applicable prescribed safety requirements; (b) the dangerous goods are accompanied by all applicable prescribed documents; and (c) the means of containment and transport comply with all applicable prescribed safety standards and display all applicable prescribed safety marks. 1.

8 Prohibition: Explosives person must not handle, offer for transport or transport dangerous goods by any means of transport if the dangerous goods are explosives and (a) are in direct contact with a large means of containment, except when the explosives are to be transported by road vehicle in quantities that are allowed for the explosives in Schedule 1 or in any special provision in Schedule 2; or (b) are also radioactive materials. 1. 9 Use of the Most Recent Version of the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or 49 CFR person who is required or permitted by these Regulations to comply with all or a portion of the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or 49 CFR may comply with the most recent version of those documents rather than the version named in the table to paragraph 1. 3 (2) (f) and in the definitions in section 1.

4. 1. 10 Use of Classification in the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or the UN Recommendations A person may use the appropriate classification set out in the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code or the UN Recommendations to transport dangerous goods within Canada by a road vehicle, a railway vehicle or a ship on a domestic voyage if these Regulations or the document from which the classification is taken does not forbid their transport. 1. 11 Use of 49 CFR for Non-regulated Dangerous Goods When a substance is regulated in the United States by 49 CFR but is not regulated in Canada by these Regulations, a person may transport the substance between Canada and the United States by road vehicle or railway vehicle in accordance with all or part of 49 CFR. This means that, for example, the safety marks displayed in accordance with 49 CFR would not be considered misleading.

1. 12 Evidence: Safety Marks, Prescribed Documents As provided for in section 42 of the Act, in any prosecution for an offence, evidence that a means of containment or transport bore a safety mark or was accompanied by a prescribed document is, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, proof of the information shown or indicated by the safety mark or contained in the prescribed document. 1. 13 Defence: Due Diligence As provided for in section 40 of the Act, a person must not be found guilty of an offence if it is established that the person took all reasonable measures to comply with the Act or to prevent the commission of the offence. 1.

14 [REPEALED]Special Cases The following sections, and some of the special provisions included in Schedule 2, Special Provisions, provide an exemption for dangerous goods that are "in transport." Such an exemption extends to handling, offering for transport and to the means of containment used. In section 1. 15, for example, a shipping document is not required when the dangerous goods are in transport. Consequently, the consignor would not be required to prepare a shipping document before the dangerous goods are placed in transport.

1. 15 Exemption for Personal Use (1) These Regulations do not apply to dangerous goods in transport on a road vehicle, a railway vehicle or a ship on a domestic voyage, if the dangerous goods (a) are transported between (i) a retail outlet and the residence of the purchaser, (ii) a retail outlet and the purchaser's place of use, (iii) the residence of the purchaser and a place of use, or (iv) two residences; (b) are contained in one or more means of containment each of which has a gross mass less than or equal to 30 kg and is designed, constructed, filled, closed, secured and maintained so that under normal conditions of transport, including handling, there will be no accidental release of dangerous goods that could endanger public safety; (c) are not for resale or for commercial or industrial use; and (d) are in a quantity and concentration available to the general public at retail outlets. Examples of retail outlets are hardware stores, automotive industry stores, pool supply stores and farm co-ops.

1. 17 Limited Quantities Subsection (1) establishes the concept of a limited quantity of dangerous goods. Note that it is established in terms of a consignment, that is, a consignment of dangerous goods is a limited quantity if the conditions in this section are met. Subsection (2) provides an exemption for a limited quantity. Subsection (3) provides an exemption for an accumulation of more than one limited quantity. However, there are conditions.

For example, the means of containment containing the dangerous goods must be marked. Also, when an accumulation of dangerous goods exceeds 500 kg gross mass and is offered for transport by one consignor to one destination, the dangerous goods must be accompanied by a document. (1) A consignment of dangerous goods, other than explosives, is a limited quantity if (a) the consignment is contained in a means of containment that has a gross mass less than or equal to 30 kg and is designed, constructed, filled, closed, secured and maintained so that under normal conditions of transport, including handling, there will be no accidental release of the dangerous goods that could endanger public safety; and (b) the dangerous goods (i) if a solid, have a mass that is less than or equal to the number shown for them in column 6 of Schedule 1 when that number is expressed in kilograms, (ii) if a liquid, have a volume that is less than or equal to the number shown for them in column 6 of Schedule 1 when that number is expressed in livres, or (iii) if a gas, including a gas in a liquefied form, are contained in a means of containment that has a water capacity less than or equal to the number shown for them in column 6 of Schedule 1 when that number is expressed in livres. (2) These Regulations do not apply to a limited quantity of dangerous goods in transport on a road vehicle, a railway vehicle or a ship on a domestic voyage, if the means of containment is marked on one side, other than the side on which it is intended to rest or to be stacked during transport, with the words "Limited Quantity" or "quantit'e limit " ee" or the abbreviation "Ltd.

Qty." or "quant. lt " ee" with each letter at least 25 mm high and in a colour that contrasts with the background colour of the means of containment. (3) These Regulations do not apply to an accumulation of limited quantities of dangerous goods in transport on a road vehicle, a railway vehicle or a ship on a domestic voyage, if the limited quantities are in one or more means of containment each of which is marked on one side, other than the side on which it is intended to rest or to be stacked during transport, with the words "Limited Quantity" or "quantit'e limit " ee" or the abbreviation "Ltd. Qty." or "quant. lt " ee" with each letter at least 25 mm high and in a colour that contrasts with the background colour of the means of containment. (4) When a limited quantity is in a means of containment that is inside another means of containment that has a gross mass less than or equal to 30 kg and the outer means of containment is marked in accordance with subsections (2) and (3), the inside means of containment is considered to be marked with the words "Limited Quantity" or "quantit'e limit " ee" or the abbreviation "Ltd.

Qty." or "quant. lt " ee." (5) When the gross mass of an accumulation of limited quantities offered for transport by one consignor to one destination is greater than 500 kg, the consignor must give to the carrier a shipping document that, despite sections 3. 5 and 3. 6 of Part 3, Documentation, includes the words "Limited Quantity" or "quantit'e limit " ee" or the abbreviation "Ltd.

Qty." or "quant. lt " ee" and a list of the classes of dangerous goods in the accumulation. 1. 18 Medical Device or Article These Regulations do not apply to the transport on a road vehicle, a railway vehicle or a ship on a domestic voyage of (a) a medical device, wheelchair, medical article or a medical cylinder if (i) the medical device is attached to or implanted in an individual or an animal, (ii) the wheelchair or medical article is in transport and is intended for the personal use of a specific individual, or (iii) the medical cylinder is intended for the personal use of an individual on board the road vehicle, railway vehicle or ship, is in compliance with Part 5, Means of Containment, and has a water capacity less than or equal to 5 L; or (b) a radio-pharmaceutical that has been injected in or ingested by an individual or an animal. 1. 19 Samples (1) These Regulations do not apply to samples of goods, including forensic samples, that are reasonably believed to be dangerous goods if, for the purposes of inspection or investigation duties under an Act of Parliament or of a provincial legislature, the samples are (a) in transport under the direct supervision of a federal, provincial or municipal government employee acting in the course of employment; and (b) in a means of containment that is designed, constructed, filled, closed, secured and maintained so that under normal conditions of transport, including handling, there will be no accidental release of dangerous goods that could endanger public safety.
