Consultation document on proposed revisions to Federal Halocarbon Regulations

Environment Canada is in the initial stages of revising the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003 (FHR 2003). The proposed revisions aim to continue minimizing releases of halocarbons to the environment while addressing various administrative and operational issues in a practical manner.

This Consultation Document was prepared to provide information to stakeholders and Aboriginal groups on the issues that have been encountered in implementing the FHR 2003. Proposed revisions to these Regulations were presented, including targeted questions where specific information and/or input are being sought.

Stakeholders and Aboriginal groups were encouraged to review this Consultation Document and provide input on the proposed revisions by March 31, 2013. All comments received are being reviewed and considered.

Four public consultation meetings and two webinars regarding the proposed revisions to the FHR 2003 were conducted in March 2013. A report on these consultations is available.

Proposed revisions identified through this process will be used by Environment Canada to put forward draft revised regulations. Furtheropportunities to provide input will be offered following the publication of the revised Regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I.
