Forward regulatory plan

A forward regulatory plan is a public list or description of anticipated regulatory changes or actions that a department intends to bring forward or undertake in a specified time frame. It is intended to give consumers, business, other stakeholders and trading partners greater opportunity to inform the development of regulations and to plan for the future. It should be noted that this forward regulatory plan will be adjusted and updated over time as the Canadian Transportation Agency's (Agency) operating environment also changes over time.

This plan provides information on planned and potential regulatory initiatives that the Agency expects to bring forward over the next two years. It also identifies public consultation opportunities and a departmental contact point for each regulatory initiative.

  • Forward Regulatory Plan: 2016-2018 

During 2016-2017, the Agency will begin a Regulatory Modernization Initiative to ensure that the regulations, guidelines, and codes it applies take into account evolving industry practices and customer expectations, avoid unnecessary administrative burdens, and facilitate timely identification and correction of instances of non-compliance.
This review will likely result in regulatory initiatives for the 2016-2018 period which will be posted when it is appropriate to do so.

This information is current as of April 1, 2016.
