Abstract

The law relating to the transportation of dangerous goods is a complex combination of numerous statutes. The new Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act is intended to be an all-inclusive regulatory scheme. The author points out many problems inherent in the Act and suggests that they are a result of the Act being passed in response to an urgent situation rather than as a result of foresight. The author reviews the current legislation, discusses the reforms contemplated by the Act and presents recommendations.
