Rail Security Plans

ERAC can develop rail security plans and associated training for Plan Participant members.

A railway loader must implement a security plan under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992 and the Transportation of Dangerous Goods by Rail Security Regulations SOR/2019-113.

More information is available on Transport Canada's Enhancing the Security of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods by Rail website.


A railway loader is defined as:

  • any person that operates a handling site, or

  • any manufacturer or producer of dangerous goods that has possession of dangerous goods at a handling site for the purposes of loading them prior to, or unloading them after, transportation by rail.

The content of a written plan includes items such as:

  • identifying responsible persons,

  • organizational structure,

  • security risk assessment, and

  • prevention.
