SOR/2017-19: Regulations Amending the Air Transportation Regulations (Miscellaneous Program)

REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS STATEMENT (This statement is not part of the Regulations.) Issues The Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations (the Committee) has identified a number of technical issues with the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/8858 and has recommended amendments to address these issues. Objectives The amendments have the following objectives: to correct discrepancies between the French and English versions; to add clarity to regulatory provisions; and to correct errors and to improve the text. Description Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58 (1) Clarification of terms: The term “principal place of business” (“établissement principal”) is replaced with “place of business” (“établissement”) in subparagraphs 25(2)(f)(iii), 43(2.1)(e)(iii), and 52(e)(iii) in both the English and French text to provide that the establishment may be any place in Canada where the air carrier receives goods for transportation or offers passenger tickets for sale. (2) Correction to reference: The reference to paragraph 8.2(1)(b) in subsection 8.5(4) is replaced by 8.3(1)(b) to correct an improper numbering reference in the French text. (3) Removal of reference to repealed subsection: The reference to subsection 36(2) within subsection 36(1) is removed from both the English and the French text, as that subsection has been repealed. (4) Corrections and improvements: a. The word “that” is added to subparagraph 95(3)(c)(ii) to correct the grammatical structure in the English text. b. The phrase “the original” (“l’original”) is replaced by “an original” (“un original”) in subparagraph 95(3)(c)(i) in both the English and French text because it is possible to have more than one original. c. The term “sur reservation” in subparagraph 107(1)(n)(iii) is replaced by “surréservation” to correct a typographical error in the French text. d. The term “fixer” in subparagraph 115(1)(b)(i) is replaced by “publier” in the French text for consistency. e. The phrase “annule celle rétablie par l’arrêté” is replaced by “annule celle rétablie par suite de l’arrêté” in the French text of subsection 129(2) to clarify that it is the tariff and not the order which gives effect to the provision, and the English text is redrafted to make it clearer. f. The phrase “décrites aux annexes V et VI” is replaced by “ énoncées dans le certificat établi conformément aux annexes V ou VI” in the French text of subsection 133(3) as the schedules set out the form of the certificate rather than describe the concurrence. The English text is redrafted to make it clearer. (5) Corrections of discrepancies between the English and the French text: a. In English, the word “fully” is deleted from section 125 to harmonize with the French text. b. In English, the word “full” is deleted from paragraph 139(e) to harmonize with the French text. c. In French, the term “L’original” in subsection (1) of the Filing directions for Schedule I is replaced with “Un original” to harmonize with the English text. (6) Removal of obligation from Schedule: The requirement to forward copies of service schedules to connecting carriers is removed from Schedule XIII in both the English and French text because sections 137 and 138 do not require that certification. “One-for-One” Rule The “One-for-One” Rule does not apply to these amendments, as there is no change in administrative costs or burden to business. Small business lens The small business lens does not apply to these amendments, as there are no costs to small business. Rationale The amendments to the Air Transportation Regulations are in response to the Committee’s review of the Regulations. The amendments help to correct or improve the regulatory base, and do not impose any costs on the government or stakeholders.
