Substitutions or Exemptions

Part III of the Accord Acts
Pursuant to Section 151 of the Atlantic Accord Implementation Acts the Chief Safety Officer (CSO) and/or the Chief Conservation Officer (CCO) 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” that is administered by the Operations Department.

Part III.1 of the Accord Acts – Occupational Health and Safety
Pursuant to Section 205.069 and 205.07 of the Atlantic Accord Implementation Acts, the CSO may, on application, permit the use at a workplace or on a passenger craft, for a specified time and subject to specified conditions, of specified equipment, methods, measures, standards or other things, in lieu of any required by regulations made under this Part, if he or she is satisfied that protection of the health and safety of employees at the workplace or on the passenger craft would not be diminished and the granting of the permission is not otherwise prohibited by regulation. Pursuant to these sections, the application shall be in a form acceptable to the CSO, include information with respect to the consequences to health and safety that might reasonably be anticipated if the permission is granted and be accompanied by technical information sufficient to enable the CSO to make a decision on the application. With regards to a passenger craft, the application shall also be accompanied by documentation issued by the Minister of Transport indicating that if the permission is granted, it would not contravene any Act or law that applies to the operation of a passenger craft.

This provision only allows for substitutions from the regulations made under this Part. Through related provisions until the transitional regulations are repealed, the CSO may, on application, grant exemptions from the transitional regulations under this Part.  Once the transitional regulations are repealed, only substitutions will be accepted i.e. any request for exemption requirement of the forthcoming OHS regulation will be repealed.

Any application to the 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 under the Public Submissions tab.

Regulatory Query Process

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 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 also seek advice from Transport Canada Marine Safety on proposals related to marine matters on foreign flagged marine installations or structures.

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 CSO and/or the CCO regarding the approval of the proposal.

Decisions are effective from the date of issuance until the earlier of:
a) the date a Regulation referenced is repealed or the date a particular subsection that is the object of a substitution or exemption being granted is amended or replaced, or

b) the date on which the CSO and /or CCO (as applicable) revokes a Decision as a result of i) any enforcement action by the Board related to the Decision or ii) new information or analysis coming to light challenging the assessment upon which the Decision was based, including but not limited to any changes to commitments made by the Applicant in its application.

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

The public is invited to provide comments 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 submissions and applicant’s response will form part of the CSO’s deliberations of the application.
