The Issue: 

The Government of Canada is holding consultations on proposed amendments to their “Small Spark-Ignition Engine Emissions” regulations.

Background:

The Government of Canada is proposing amendments to regulations that will create stricter emission standards for air pollutants from small spark-ignition type engines.  The purpose of the amendments is to further reduce smog-forming emissions from such engines.  The amendments will also align Canadian standards with those of the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Examples of goods that contain small spark-ignition engines:

  • Lawn mowers

  • Hedge Trimmers

  • Brush cutters

  • Garden Tractors

  • Snow blowers

  • Generator sets (mobile type)

  • Welders

  • Pressure washers

  • Chain saws

  • Log splitters

  • Chippers / shredders

How does this affect you?

If you are an importer of, or Canadian manufacturer of goods with spark-ignition engines, you have the opportunity to provide comments to the Government on the proposed regulations.

Contact details and due date:

Interested persons may file comments or a notice of objection with the Minister by August 25, 2016 to:

Stéphane Couroux

Director, Transportation Division
