Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2016

The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric on the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system.

All federal regulations administered by the Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total 2016 count is 1,971. This number is reduced from the total 2015 count of 1,972 that had remained unchanged from the original June 30th 2014 baseline count of 1,972.

Between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016, the Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio's total count of administrative burden requirements was reduced by a count of 1 through amendments to the Agricultural Marketing Programs Regulations. These amendments clarified repayment requirements and provided flexibility and streamlining of the repayment provisions. Some administrative burden requirements were reduced yet clarifications of required information and terms of repayment balanced the reductions. The end result was a reduction in administrative burden from 14 to 13.

There were no other regulatory changes affecting the count of administrative burden requirements in any other Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio regulations. Furthermore, there were no changes to forms or schedules attached to or associated with any regulations. As a result, the total administrative baseline count is reduced from 1,972 to 1,971.
