Guidance document on Benzene in Gasoline Regulations: chapter 7


Questions on Part 3 and Part 4 of the Regulations

Part 3 -- Amendment to Schedule 1 to the Act (Section 23)

P3.1 What is the significance of section 23?

When regulations made pursuant to section 34 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act address a substance determined to be "toxic" under section 11 of that Act, the substance and a brief description of the regulations are added to Schedule 1 to that Act.

Section 23 adds the description of the regulations to the schedule, while a separate order (which was passed at the same time as the regulations) added benzene to the schedule.

Part 4 -- Coming into Force (Section 24)

P4.1 What requirements come into force when the regulations are registered?

All requirements of the regulations came into force on November 6, 1997, which was the date that they were registered (the regulations were published on November 26, 1997). Note, however, that all relevant sections for compositional and administrative requirements include the dates upon which they become effective.
