Stage 10 (Omnibus) Amendments to the Contaminated Sites Regulation (CSR)

Application Submission: Administrative Bulletin #3 Re-issued

FEBRUARY 15, 2017 – Administrative Bulletin 3 prescribes the administrative process for legal instrument applications being submitted during the regulatory transition period ending October 31, 2017, when the new numerical standards under the Stage 10 Amendment to the Contaminated Sites Regulation (CSR) will come into force.

This Bulletin has been amended and re-posted to provide the following clarification:  the advice in the document applies to both numerical and risk-based CSR instruments submitted during the transition year up to October 31, 2017.  The previous version incorrectly stated that the advice in the Bulletin applied only to numerical instruments. Any questions should be directed to site@gov.bc.ca.
