New Limited Quantity Mark Now Mandatory

 

Until December 31, 2020, instead of the international mark, the means of containment may display:

  • The abbreviation "Ltd. Qty." or "quant. ltée";
  • The words "Consumer Commodity" or "bien de consommation";

As of January 1st, 2021, the new international safety mark for “LTD QTY” shipments by ground transport in Canada must display this label.  

It is important to make sure you and your employees understand when a limited quantity label is required and why.  This will avoid refused shipments and protect your business from infractions.
