Administrative Burden Baseline: Update
The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric on the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system.
All federal regulations administered by the Canada Border Services Agency that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total count is 1274. The total baseline count is 1426.
In , the Canada Border Services Agency published regulations amending the Duty Free Shop Regulations which reduced the number of administrative requirements on the industry by repealing previous regulatory reporting and record keeping requirements that no longer served the evolving needs of duty free shop operations.
Previous years' counts for the Canada Border Services Agency are available upon request.
