Regulatory stock review plan 2019 to 2029: Environment and Climate Change Canada

Introduction

This plan provides the list of regulations that Environment and Climate Change Canada expects to review within a 10 year period. It also includes a rationale summarizing the reason for the regulatory review, information on last date of review or amendment and a departmental contact point for each regulatory initiative.

The first section of this plan provides the list of the 6 regulations that Environment and Climate Change Canada expects to initiate a regulatory review between April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

Review period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020

Benzene in Gasoline Regulations

Enabling Acts

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Benzene in Gasoline Regulations is over 20 years old, data is available to measure the objectives, and a review of these regulations was already planned.

Approach to the review

TBD

Date of last review or amendment

Last review 2003

Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003

Enabling Acts

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Federal Halocarbon Regulations (FHR) 2003 were published in 2003 and minor amendments were made in 2009 to address comments and recommendations of the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations. These amendments did not change the intent or scope of the FHR 2003. Although the Regulations do not include a requirement for mandatory review, the Department has already initiated the process to amend the FHR 2003. In line with the objectives of the regulatory stock review, the Department concluded on the need to amend the FHR in order to enhance the effectiveness of the Regulations. Amendments being considered will also reduce administrative burden, remove incorporation by reference that is no longer applicable, fix enforceability issues, remove obsolete provisions, and modernize the scope and framework of the Regulations.

The revised Regulations would repeal and replace the FHR 2003 (for more information please see the Forward Regulatory Plan).

Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations

Enabling Acts

Fisheries Act

Rationale for the review

The most recent comprehensive review of Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations (PPER) was completed in the early 1990s. Despite high compliance, environmental effect monitoring (EEM) studies demonstrate that some pulp and paper effluent continues to adversely effect  fish and fish habitat.

The pulp and paper sector is undergoing significant changes as a result of the development of new bio-products.

A modernization could seek to improve environmental protection, change the scope to cover the production of new bio-products, streamline provisions to reduce burden, and improve clarity.

See Forward Regulatory Plan for more details on the proposed amendments.

Secondary Lead Smelter Release Regulations

Enabling Acts

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Secondary Lead Smelter Release Regulations (SLSRR) were published in 1991.  The regulations limit the concentration of particulate matter containing lead and the concentration of lead emitted into the ambient air from secondary lead smelting facilities. The Regulations also contain provisions regarding plant malfunctions or breakdown of equipment, emission testing, and reporting.  Over the years, the number of secondary lead smelters in Canada has greatly reduced from 51 in 1984 to 4 in 2018.  Given this decrease, these smelters currently account for only a small amount of lead emissions as part of the broader primary base metal smelting sector. More recently, the focus of the Department has been to develop other instruments (Pollution Prevention Plans and Environmental Performance Agreements) to address emissions of lead from the broader smelter sector. Additionally, the SLSRR contain a number of challenges related to enforceability, and monitoring and reporting requirements which are out of date. A review would support a decision about the path-forward, including whether to repeal the regulations.

Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations

Enabling Acts

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations have been in place since 2008 and include numerous references to technical standards.  A review of the Regulations is needed to ensure that these referenced standards are still relevant and allow for flexibility as new technologies emerge, while ensuring protection of the environment from leaks or spills of petroleum products and allied petroleum products.

See Forward Regulatory Plan for more details on the proposed Miscellaneous amendments regulations.

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations

Enabling Acts

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations were published in 2009. These regulations were based on the Ozone Transport Commission (north-east US states) regulatory requirements in force at the time.  Since publication of ECCC’s regulations, regulatory requirements in certain U.S. states have been revised downwards and many products in the Canadian market now have significantly lower VOC concentrations than what is required by the regulations. As such, ECCC is considering amending the regulations to reflect the current North American technology and market availability to achieve additional VOC reductions. 

In addition, modifications to the one litre exemption are also being considered to preclude the misuse of  this exemption to circumvent regulatory requirements by selling small containers in bundles.
