BCN 2001/13 - Streamlining - Renumbering of Instruments [BCN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2001-03-02
Effective Date: 2001-02-28

Over the past few months the Commission has been streamlining its regulatory instruments.  In the first phase we eliminated the outdated and less useful instruments.  Over 138 instruments were eliminated.  That phase is now complete, although we now review every instrument regularly to ensure it is still necessary.

We now begin the second phase.  We will re-issue the surviving instruments under the 5-digit subject-based numbering system used for local instruments issued since mid 1999.  See for an explanation of this system. 

The re-issued instruments will be brought up to date by correcting cross references and making similar editorial amendments.

Appendix A lists the instruments being re-issued as of the date of this notice.

Appendix B is a table of concordance showing all instruments re-issued under the new numbering system, including those re-issued before the streamlining project began.  This table will be updated monthly as the project continues.

DATED at Vancouver, British Columbia, on February 28, 2001.
