Under the common carrier obligation, CP is required to move products considered dangerous goods, or called hazardous materials in the U.S., provided they meet federal standards.​​ As the consumer and societal needs for these products carry on, we continually strive to make the transportation of dangerous goods as safe as possible.

Like other North American railways, we are subject to a number of regulations, guidelines and standards established and monitored by federal agencies and industry associations​.​​​​
