Treasury Board Secretariat Regulatory Review
September 27, 2019 - As a young pilot in the industry, it always seemed to me that regulations came down from Transport Canada on a stone tablet. Anything I ever wrote to Transport Canada disappeared into a black hole. As I grew out of my role as a pilot, and into my role as a lobbyist here in Ottawa, it became more evident how changes to the rules that govern our behaviour in the industry take place.
In the HAC Newsletter, I have written before about the different sources of pressure on Transport Canada that drive the Department to make changes to the regulations – including TSB Recommendations; the media; questions in the House; recent accidents; Budgetary constraints; technological advances (i.e. EGPWS); the drive to harmonize with ICAO, the international community, and our neighbours to the south; new types of aircraft (i.e. drones), etc. What also escaped me entirely as a young pilot were the structural requirements of lawmaking – Canada Gazette I consultation; the Committee for Regulatory Oversight; and Treasury Board’s role in the process of lawmaking, and the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations.

The Canadian General Standard Board (CGSB) has released the first draft of the new National Standard of Canada CAN/CGSB-192.3 entitled “Transportation of Dangerous Goods Training, Assessment and Competency”.

September 27, 2019 - Recently, Transport Canada has been focused on piloting FRMS for CAR 705 operators, owing to the accelerated implementation timeline for that industry segment. You may recall from a previous Newsletter, that HAC was looking for a few helicopter operators to participate in the upcoming helicopter FRMS Pilot Project. Black Swan Helicopters and HeliJet have volunteered to participate, but we are looking for one other VFR helicopter operator to participate in the trial. Interested operators should contact firstname.lastname@example.org without delay.
