Please note: All reporting requirements for the 30-day follow-up report are listed in the Sections 8.7 and 8.12 of the TDG Regulations. While the TDG Regulations requires you submit a 30-day follow-up report, using the form is voluntary. We created this form to help you meet the 30-day follow-up report requirements.

The form will also offer spaces to provide voluntary information that will be used by TC for research and evaluation. It is clearly indicated when the information is requested on a voluntary basis.
