ENVIRONMENTAL LAW: AMENDMENTS - New Hazardous Waste Regulations Proposed - September 2006
The proposed Interprovincial Movement of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on September 2, 2006. The proposed regulations would repeal and replace the existing Interprovincial Movement of Hazardous Waste Regulations. To ensure consistency with the Export and Import of Hazardous Wastes and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations, which came into force on November 1, 2005, the proposed regulations would introduce new definitions of hazardous waste and hazardous recyclable material and would replace references to "manifests" with references to "movement documents".More Info...
