Revocation of O. Reg. 212/02 Reporting Requirements - Sulphur Levels in Gasoline under the Environmental Protection Act no longer considered to have any legal or practical effect.

Regulation Number(s):
Ontario Regulation 212/02
Instrument Type:
Bill or Act:
Environmental Protection Act
Summary of Proposal:
The purpose of O. Reg. 212/02 was to require Ontario gasoline manufacturers, blenders and importers to report to the government the average level of sulphur in their gasoline four times a year.
The reporting regulation was a public outreach and education initiative under Ontario’s Clean Air Action Plan. The aim of the regulation was to inform Ontarians about the pollution-causing agents in the gas they use in their cars and to make public the sulphur levels of gasoline sold in Ontario.
The regulation set out reporting requirements until the end of 2004 and record retention requirements until the end of 2007. The regulation was only intended to require reporting until the federally-regulated 30 parts per million (ppm) average level of sulphur for gasoline became law on January 1, 2005.
The regulation was revoked by O.Reg. 375/10 filed on September 30, 2010.
