Canada (CEPA) - Proposed Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

​On January 5, 2022, the Canadian EPA issued the Proposed Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.

The proposed amendments would make necessary modifications to the Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations, the On-Road Vehicle and Engine Emission Regulations and the Marine Spark-Ignition Engine, Vessel and Off-road Recreational Vehicle Emission Regulations made under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) to maintain alignment with the corresponding technical amendments made by the U.S. EPA. The proposed amendments would also make modifications to the Off-road Compression-Ignition (Mobile and Stationary) and Large Spark-Ignition Engine Emission Regulations to correct a regulatory misalignment with the U.S. EPA.

The proposed amendments will affect Canadian manufacturers and importers of vehicles and engines subject to the regulations. The proposed amendments would ensure the application of the regulations is unchanged as a result of recent modifications in the United States.

All other changes made by the U.S. EPA in their technical amendments that are not amended by the proposed Amendments would automatically apply in Canada as they are incorporated by reference in the various vehicle and engine emission regulations.
