Description: 

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) requires that movement documents (6 part manifest) accompany shipments of hazardous waste as described in the Guideline for the General Management of Hazardous Waste in the NWT.
In 2014, two amendments concerning consignor certification statement and UN Number were made to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (Canada) (TGDR) that affects the existing version of the hazardous waste movement document (6 copy manifest) used by generators, carriers and receivers of hazardous waste.
Movement documents have been updated and distributed to reflect the amendment to the consignor certification statement that must be used. However, the changes to the order of UN number are not complete and new movement documents are not currently available.
