One of the key tools the Agency uses in carrying out its mandate as an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal is the Canadian Transportation Agency General Rules. These Rules set out the overall procedures, processes and timelines applied by the Agency.

During winter 2012, the Agency consulted on proposed revisions to its General Rules, including new Rules of Procedure for Adjudicating Disputes.

What we consulted on:

Background information:

In 2013, the revised General Rules will replace the current General Rules in a phased approach.

Phase I Amendment: One-Member Quorum

After holding public consultations on the proposed revisions to the General Rules and taking into consideration stakeholder submissions, an amendment to the Agency General Rules, providing for a one-Member quorum, will come into force when it is registered on July 3, 2013.

The one-Member quorum amendment is the first phase of the larger initiative to replace the current General Rules, which have been in place since 2005. Our purpose is to modernize, streamline and simplify the current General Rules and to develop faster, simpler, and more predictable procedures.

Phase II Amendments: Anticipated Fall 2013
