Substitutions or Exemptions

The Atlantic Accord Implementation Acts specify that the Chief Safety Officer and/or the Chief Conservation Officer may authorize the use of equipment, methods, measures or standards in lieu of any required by regulations, where those Officers are satisfied that the use of that other equipment and those other methods, measures or standards would provide a level of safety, protection of the environment and conservation equivalent to that provided by compliance with regulations. They may also grant an exemption from any regulatory requirement in respect of equipment, methods, measures or standards, where those Officers are satisfied with the level of safety, protection of the environment and conservation that will be achieved without compliance with that requirement. To document and process such requests from industry, along with requests to clarify the application of specific regulations in specific cases, the Board has developed a "regulatory query process", which the Operations Department administers.

If an Operator or installation owner requires clarification on, equivalency for, or exemption from, a regulatory requirement, the applicant must submit a Regulatory Query Form (RQF) outlining its proposal. For regulations related to the Certificate of Fitness, the proposal must be submitted to the Certifying Authority for their concurrence with the proposal. In addition, for Canadian flagged installations, where a similar requirement is in the Canada Shipping Act and associated regulations, the proposal must also be submitted to Transport Canada Marine Safety for review. The C-NLOPB may seek advice from Transport Canada Marine Safety on proposals related to marine matters on foreign flagged installations.

Following Certifying Authority and/or Transport Canada concurrence with the proposal where required, C-NLOPB staff will review the proposal. If C-NLOPB staff are satisfied that the applicant's proposal provides for an equivalent level of safety, they will make a recommendation to the Chief Safety Officer and/or the Chief Conservation Officer regarding the approval of the proposal.



Pursuant to recent amendments to the Atlantic Accord Acts, any application to the Board’s Chief Safety Officer (CSO) to substitute or exempt the use of equipment, methods, measures, standards or other things in lieu of any required by occupational health and safety regulations shall normally be made available to the public for a period of 30 days. Any such application is made by way of the regulatory query (RQ) process established by the Board for this purpose.

All applications received in relation to Part III.1 – Occupational Health and Safety of the Accord Acts and regulations under that Part are listed below. There is no obligation to publically post RQ applications received in relation to any of the other regulations.

The public is invited to provide any submissions in relation to an application to information@cnlopb.ca, please include the reference number in all submissions. Any submissions received will be forwarded to the applicant who will be requested to provide a written response to the CSO. The applicant’s response will form part of the CSO’s deliberations of the application.

CSO decisions on all RQs are posted in this section of the website after the deadline for public posting has passed and the CSO’s decision has been rendered.
