BCN 2001/28 - Streamlining - Renumbering of Instruments [BCN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2001-04-27
Effective Date: 2001-04-26

Over the past few months, the Commission has been streamlining its regulatory instruments by eliminating the outdated and less useful instruments and by renumbering the surviving ones. Over the next few months, we will re-issue all the surviving instruments under the 5-digit subject-based numbering system used for local instruments issued since mid-1999. See www.bcsc.bc.ca/policy/appendix.asp for an explanation of this system.

We will bring the re-issued instruments up to date by correcting cross-references and making similar editorial amendments.  To date, we have re-issued 29 instruments (see BCN#2001/13 and BCN#2001/19).

Appendix A lists the 22 instruments we are re-issuing today.  Appendix A includes 12 new Forms that replace existing Forms. The Executive Director's specification of these forms is effective today, but the old forms can be used until July 1, 2001. 

With respect to Form 36 Insider Report (reissued today as BCF#55-901F), insiders are reminded that section 159 of the Securities Rules allows insiders of certain reporting issuers to file insider reports required by the laws of another jurisdiction instead of Form 36 or BCF#55-901F.

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.
