A permit for equivalent level of safety is an authorization issued under section 31 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act to conduct an activity in compliance with the conditions of that authorization instead of with the requirements of the TDG Clear Language Regulations.
There is no obligation for anyone to apply for a permit for equivalent level of safety to handle, offer for transport, or transport dangerous goods. However, if a person wants to conduct an activity in a way that is not consistent with the Act or the Regulations, the person must apply for a permit for equivalent level of safety to do so under section 31 of the Act.
