NEW: CPA recommendations prompt government to seek member feedback on Technical Guidelines for E2 Regulations

Print this Article

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is planning to revise and amend existing sections of the Guidelines for the Environmental Emergency (E2) Regulations, 2019, which came into force on August 24, 2019, and adding additional information relating to a number of topics. These include defining container systems, dealing with mixtures that do not have a CAS# in Schedules 1 or 2 of the regulations, evaluating release scenarios, and exercising Environmental Emergency Plans.

The CPA had met with ECCC in late 2019 to examine the unnecessary regulatory burden the E2 regulations place on the propane industry and recommend changes (see Update: Federal CPA meets with Environment Canada to advocate for change on E2 Regulations).

ECCC is requesting the CPA to solicit its members to obtain feedback on where the guidelines could be improved. A copy of the existing guidelines can be found here.

To ensure that the amendments are of value to all concerned members, the CPA is asking members to submit their comments and recommendations to Robert Loenhart, vice-president, Regulatory Affairs and Safety at before March 6, 2020. The CPA will prepare and submit a consolidation of member recommendations to ECCC.
