Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2017

The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric of the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline count contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system. Administrative burden includes planning, collecting, processing and reporting of information, completing forms and retaining data required by the federal government to comply with a regulation.

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 2017 count is 1,971 and remains unchanged from the total 2016 count of 1,971. The total 2015 count was 1,972; unchanged from the original total June 30th 2014 baseline.

Between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, the Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio's total count of administrative burden requirements was not changed. There were no regulatory changes affecting the count of administrative burden requirements in any Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio regulations. Furthermore, there were no changes to forms or schedules attached to or associated with any regulations.
