NIN 2000/48 - Streamlining - Elimination of Notices and Interpretation Notes [NIN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2000-10-26
Effective Date: 2000-10-26
The 29 Notices and Interpretation Notes listed in Appendix A are being eliminated as of October 31, 2000.

As indicated in NIN#2000/41, the Commission has an objective in its strategic plan to review existing instruments to see if their continued existence is justified. The Commission established a process to meet this objective and, as a first step in that process, issued NIN#2000/41, which eliminated 70 NINs at the end of September. We are now eliminating another 29. As indicated in NIN 2000/41, most of the NINs being eliminated are no longer applicable. Some refer to matters that are not now topical. In the latter case, the elimination of the NIN does not necessarily mean that the Commission has changed its view on the matter, only that it is not of sufficient current interest to warrant Commission comment.

All documents listed in the Appendix will continue to be available in the Historical Documents Database at the Commission's website.

NINs now expire automatically as follows. First, NINs that request comments on other documents will generally be eliminated one month after the expiry of the comment period. Second, NINs that announce new rules, orders or policies, or changes to them, will be eliminated three months from the relevant effective date. (Although the NINs expire, the documents they describe will remain on our website in the Commission Documents Database section.) As a result of this process, another 8 NINs were eliminated this month in addition to those listed in Appendix A.

The review process continues and will result in more notices of this nature dealing with the remaining NINs, Blanket Orders, and Local Policy Statements. We are also working with the other members of the Canadian Securities Administrators to identify and eliminate outdated or unnecessary CSA Notices and other national documents.

DATED at Vancouver, British Columbia, on October 26, 2000.
