Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2020

The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric on the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system.

All federal regulations that are administered by Public Safety Canada that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. Between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020, the Department's total count of administrative burden requirements did not change. There were no regulatory changes that affected the existing count of administrative burden requirements in any of the Department's regulations. In addition there were no changes to forms or schedules attached to or associated with the regulations. As a result the baseline count remains unchanged from the 2014 baseline count of 229.
