Tackling Red Tape – The Environmental Management and Protection (General) Regulations

As part of the Red Tape Reduction initiative, feedback from stakeholders was sought regarding The Environmental Management and Protection (General) Regulations.

About Red Tape Reduction
Reducing red tape is one of the most important measures a government can take to help promote a healthy economy. A good regulatory environment helps Saskatchewan businesses innovate, grow and remain competitive.

Red tape is not always easy to define and isolate. Some examples of red tape include:

  • Rules that significantly exceed government’s mandate to protect public health, safety, well-being and the environment (i.e. over-regulation).
  • Regulation that exceeds the benefit achieved from it.
  • Paperwork that is burdensome, unnecessary or ineffective.
  • Rules that are unclear, confusing or overly complex.
  • Rules that are outdated, irrelevant, obsolete or unenforced.
  • Rules that rely too heavily on penalties as a deterrent, instead of creating incentives to change.
  • There is no clear explanation or reason for the rule.

The regulations under review can be found at The Environmental Management and Protection (General) Regulations.
