Government proposes RPRA deliver Excess Soil Registry

The Government of Ontario is currently consulting on proposed changes to regulations under the Environmental Protection Act that will, among other changes, allow the Authority to establish and operate the Excess Soil Registry.

The proposed changes would also allow the registry’s purpose to be expanded beyond filing notices to include integration with other third-party systems supporting reuse of excess soil, such as tracking systems, soil matching systems and other non-regulatory programs, considering cost, security and other relevant matters.

The Government’s proposal is available for review and comment on the Environmental Registry of Ontario:

The deadline to submit feedback is November 20, 2020.
