Why consultation isn't required
This notice does not follow the normal consultation process as per O. Reg. 115/20 made under the Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993 which states that proposals for Acts, policies, regulations and instruments are exempt from Part II of the Act.
The certificates and licences under the Nutrient Management Act, 2002 expire 5 years after they are issued. To renew a certificate or licence, the applicant must pass an exam. Extension of certificates and licences are required because the examination centres are closed due to COVID-19, and applicants are not able to complete the requirements for renewal.
Extending the certificate and licences until April 30th, 2021 will ensure that nutrients are managed by certified and licenced persons, where applicable, and in compliance with regulatory requirements. These persons have already been certified and licensed under previous examination requirements.
Applicants that have already passed an examination within the year prior to April 14th, 2020 may use that passing grade to apply for renewal until April 30th, 2021.
Where applicants have received a passing grade on an examination in the year prior to April 14th, 2020, that passing grade will remain valid when applying for renewal before April 30th, 2021.
