Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2015

The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric on the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system.

Between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015, the Public Health Agency of Canada's total count of administrative burden requirements did not change. There were no regulatory changes that affected the existing count of administrative burden requirements in any of the Agency's regulations. In addition there were no changes to forms or schedules attached to or associated with the regulations. As a result, the baseline count remains unchanged from the 2014 based count of 42.

All federal regulations that are administered by the Public Health Agency of Canada that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total 2015 count is 42.
