In partnership with:
Traces Québec is available since September 22, 2021. This new traceability system allows for contaminated soil to be tracked from their original location to their final destination. It was developed and is managed by Attestra on behalf of the Ministère de l’Environnement, de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, de la Faune et des Parcs (MELCCFP).
As of November 1, 2021, the regulation regarding the traceability of excavated contaminated soil has become progressively in effect. The use of the governmental Traces Québec system is mandatory for the projects covered by the Règlement concernant la traçabilité des sols contaminés excavés (French only).
Please note that for cases covered by the Règlement concernant la traçabilité des sols contaminés excavés, fees per metric ton are applicable under the Regulation respecting the fees payable with respect to the traceability of excavated contaminated soils. Those who would like to set an example in the responsible management of contaminated soil can now use it on a voluntary basis.
The Traces Québec name and logo*, used to identify the governmental traceability system, are now the property of MELCCFP. The use of the governmental traceability system is mandatory for the excavation of contaminated soil covered by the Règlement concernant la traçabilité des sols contaminés excavés.
* Please note that the traceability system developed by Réseau-Environnement, or any other system, cannot be used for excavation work on contaminated soil covered by this regulation.
Traces Québec est une application qui permet d’assurer la traçabilité des sols contaminés, de leur terrain d’origine vers des lieux autorisés.
