Proposed Regulations

Regulations Amending the Vinyl Chloride Release Regulations, 1992 (SOR/92-631)

The Regulations Amending the Vinyl Chloride Release Regulations, 1992 (hereinafter referred to as the proposed Regulations), proposed pursuant to subsection 93(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), were developed to address the concerns identified by the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations. While the proposed Regulations are mostly of an administrative nature, they are required to improve the clarity of the current Vinyl Chloride Release Regulations, 1992 (hereinafter referred to as the Regulations) as well as to achieve consistency between the English and French versions of the Regulations. The current Vinyl Chloride Release Regulations, 1992 limit the release of vinyl chloride and polyvinyl chloride into ambient air by plants in Canada. They also contain requirements regarding malfunctions/breakdowns, the testing of emissions and reporting procedures.
