SodaStream's new permit provides additional relief, easing the regulatory burden along the logistics chain between SodaStream and its distributors, retailers and consumers. While both permits provide relief from employee training the TDG Temporary Certificate, TU 0715 authorizes alternative hazard communication (i.e. Class 2.2 hazard label is not required) and does not require a dangerous goods shipping document signed by a trained dangerous goods employee. This additional relief makes it easier and less expensive to ship SodaStream CO2 cylinders.

To obtain the Temporary Certificate from, Transport Canada, SodaStream provided ample data about the safety of our cylinders as well as information about the strength of our processes to design, manufacture, fill, inspect and test cylinders used to ship compressed gas.

Through many years of experience safely shipping compressed carbon dioxide (CO2), SodaStream provided sufficient justification and successfully demonstrated that the alternative approach provides the equivalent level of safety required by the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations

The permit applies only to SodaStream cylinders that have a water capacity of 0.64 Litres or less.

Yes, SU 11512 remains in effect. Once the transition to the Temporary Certificate, TU 0715 for the return of used SodaStream’s cylinders from the consumer and the retailer that have a water capacity of 1. 41 Litres or less will still be covered by the Temporary Certificate, TU 0715 and must be shipped in accordance to its conditions.

Yes, compliance with the permit requires that the packaging provided by SodaStream be used. The packaging already has all of the necessary safety markings needed for compliance with the Temporary Certificate, TU 0715.

No, a standard Bill of Lading or Parcel Shipping Label is sufficient provided that it includes the following content “UN 1013, Carbon dioxide”, “Temporary Certificate, TU 0715” and “CANUTEC - 24 Hour Number, 1-613-966-6666”. Note: Should the consignment exceed 500 cylinders on one truck, Class 2.2 Placards and specific information on the shipping document are required.

In most cases SodaStream will provide both pre-printed packaging with the appropriate information.
