Canada proposes Regulations Amending the Contaminated Fuel Regulations

The Contaminated Fuel Regulations (the Regulations) prohibit the import and export of fuels mixed with toxic substances, with exemptions to imports for the purpose of destruction, disposal and recycling. The import and export of contaminated fuels have been prohibited in Canada since 1991 under the Regulations. The proposed amendments would exempt contaminated fuels in transit from the prohibition on imports and exports of contaminated fuels. The proposed amendments would add subsection (3) to section 4 of the Regulations stating that “A person does not contravene section 3 if the contaminated fuel is in transit through Canada, from a place outside Canada to another place outside Canada, and there is written evidence establishing that the fuel is in transit.”
