Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2016

The Administrative Burden Baseline (ABB) 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, 2015 and June 30, 2016, the Public Health Agency of Canada's (PHAC) total count of administrative burden requirement changed as a result of the coming into force of the Human Pathogens and Toxins Regulations (HPTR) and the repeal of the Human Pathogen Importation Regulations. The Potable Water Regulations for Common Carriers for the above mentioned period ABB count remains unchanged.

All federal regulations that are administered by the PHAC that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total ABB count for PHAC is 173. PHAC's ABB count for 2015 and 2104 can be viewed on their respective webpages 2015 ABB count page and 2014 ABB count page.
