Cereclor E56T, Marine Pollutant in Canada?

For transportation within Canada, should we use the following:

UN3082, Environmentally Hazardous Substance, Liquid, N.O.S. (Chlorinated Paraffins (C14-C17)), 9, III, Marine Pollutant

or is it OK not to show "Marine Pollutant" when shipping via ground?

    If you drop the Marine Pollutant shipping classification your material would become non-regulated. The presence of any other shipping classification would override the Marine Pollutant so if there is ONLY a Marine Pollutant classification and you chose to use the exemption then it would become Non-regulated.

    Thanks, Steve. I have a difficult time with Marine Pollutants... in the case that we would decide not to show this product as a Marine Pollutant, would we ship drums as Class 9 or would we ship them as Not Regulated?

    According to 1.45.1 Marine Pollutants Exemption SOR/2008-34 "Part 3, Documentation, and Part 4, Dangerous Goods Safety Marks, do not apply to substances that are classified as marine pollutants in accordance with section 2.43 of Part 2, Classification, if they are in transport solely on land by road vehicle or railway vehicle. However, substances may be identified as marine pollutants on a shipping document and the required dangerous goods safety marks may be displayed when they are in transport by road or railway vehicle."

    So no you do not have to show Maqrine pollutant for ground or rail shippments but you may if you want.
