CIAC re-establishes Transportation Incidents Measurement System

Beginning with the 2021 reporting year, CIAC will re-establish collecting aggregate transportation incident data annually to fulfill reporting requirements to the International Council of Chemical Associations. Previously, CIAC collected data using the Transportation Incident Measurements System (TIMS) in both aggregate and detailed incident surveys. Since this initiative was done previously, it is already included in the Responsible Care® Commitments. 

The intent is to have CIAC members complete a short, annual questionnaire beginning in 2022 to gather aggregate number of transportation incidents (by mode) and the total number of shipments (by mode). The definition of “transportation incident” will parallel that of Transport Canada.  

CIAC will be hosting two information sessions on this issue December 10 and 13. To attend, please contact Kara Edwards.
