On April 2, 2011, the Department of Environment published a set of proposed amendments to the:

  • Off-Road Small Spark-Ignition Engine Emission Regulations
  • Export and Import of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations, and
  • Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations.

The objective of the amendments are to improve the clarity and consistency of the regulatory texts, align the English and French versions of each regulation, and to repeal the List of Hazardous Waste Authorities [SOR/92-636], which has become obsolete.

The proposed amendments can be reviewed here.
