Proposed – April 2016


This Code of practice describes operational activities and associated environmental concerns relating to emissons of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) from facilities in the potash sector in Canada. The recommended practices in the Code include the development and implementation of best practices to control and minimize emissions of PM2.5. These recommended practices can be used by the potash industry, regulatory agencies, and the general public as sources of technical and policy guidance. However, these recommended practices do not negate any regulatory requirements.
