Application Forms

CEPA 1999 requires that applications for Disposal at Sea permits be made in the prescribed form. The Disposal at Sea Permit Application Regulations under CEPA 1999 set out the form to be used to apply for a permit, and the form to be used to apply to renew an existing permit.

Application forms to apply for renewals of existing permits will be available in the spring of 2015.

For the convenience of permit applicants, Environment Canada has prepared versions of the permit application form that are specific to the various waste types. These waste-specific versions of the new application form should be used by applicants when applying for a Disposal at Sea permit, and can be accessed below.

The downloadable forms below are being offered as an online service and are available in portable document format (PDF) or HTML format. Once you have accessed a form, you can fill in the fields electronically, but you must print the completed form for submission by mail to the nearest Disposal at Sea Program office. You will not be able to save any completed forms. If you prefer a Microsoft Word version of an application form, please contact us at sea-mer@ec.gc.ca.

Guidance documents to assist applicants in completing the permit application forms are also available below.  For further information about applying for a Disposal at Sea permit, see the Applicant’s Guide to applying for a Disposal at Sea permit.

For the PDF version, you must have a PDF reader on your computer.  If you do not, see our Help on accessing documents in PDF format page.
