Current Regulations

Disposal at Sea Permit Application Regulations (SOR/SOR/2014-177)

To properly assess a permit application and the total possible period for which a given permit for disposal at sea may be valid, officials from Environment Canada's Disposal at Sea Program would require specific information, such as the total quantity of the substance to be disposed of at sea for the initial permit and each expected renewal, as well as the number of times the permit being applied for may require renewal. In order to ensure that officials from the Disposal at Sea Program obtain this information, the application form that is set out in the schedule to the current Regulations must be repealed and replaced with a new application form for new permits as well as with a new application form for permit renewals, both of which are set out in the schedules to the proposed Regulations.

Specifically, Schedule 1 to the proposed Regulations would provide the form in which an application for a new permit for disposal at sea must be submitted. Schedule 1 would include text providing a greater level of detail and clarity than the corresponding text in the schedule to the current Regulations concerning the type and format of information to be submitted when applying for a new permit. Schedule 2 to the proposed Regulations would provide the form in which an application for a renewal of a permit for disposal at sea must be submitted.
