Regulations Amending the Sulphur in Diesel Fuel Regulations (SOR/2012-135)The Regulations Amending the Sulphur in Diesel Fuel Regulations (referred to as the Amendments) create a new category of diesel fuel for use in large ships, which will not be subject to sulphur in diesel limits until they are expected to start switching to diesel fuel to meet the requirements of the North American Emission Control Area (ECA). Effective June 1, 2014, the maximum sulphur content of this diesel fuel will be limited to 1 000 mg/kg, and this sulphur limit will enable, with Transport Canada's planned regulations, to implement the North American ECA and international standards.
The Amendments also align sulphur limits for diesel fuel produced, imported and sold for use in stationary engines with those of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and revise several administrative requirements of the Sulphur in Diesel Fuel Regulations.
