The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations, adopted by all provinces and territories, establishes the safety requirements for the transportation of dangerous goods. A system of diamond-shaped placards and labels is used to identify dangerous goods. Different colours and symbols, such as a flame for flammables or a skull and crossbones for poisons, depict the dangers peculiar to each regulated product.

In a store that sells to both consumers and industry, it is recommended that the store screen clients beforehand so that consumers do not get access to workplace products. This screening can be done by not allowing the product to be displayed on the floor, keeping the product behind the counter or by requiring the person requesting the product to show some industry identification before buying.
Credible evidence 2 A person who imports a chemical product or a container for a purpose described in subsection 1 must, on the request of an inspector, provide credible evidence to the inspector that it is being brought into compliance with these Regulations or is being exported, as the case may be.

An importer may bring a product or container into compliance, or may sell the product or container to another person who will bring it into compliance. Also, an importer may temporarily that is, for a reasonable transition period bring non-complying chemical products or containers into Canada to re-export them to another country.
Both product and container are included to allow an importer to bring in empty containers from other countries to be filled and packaged in Canada.
