Administrative Burden Baseline - 2017

In its Red Tape Reduction Action Plan, the Government committed to build on the efforts of the Paperwork Burden Reduction Initiative by requiring departments, through the Administrative Burden Baseline, to provide a count of the requirements in federal regulations that impose an administrative burden on business.

All federal regulations that are administered by the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total 2017 count is 545. The total June 30, 2014 baseline count was 545.

Between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, the CTA'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 CTA's regulations. As a result the baseline count remains unchanged from the 2014 baseline count of 545.
