The US Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) has issued a public call for input into how the federal government can reduce or eliminate unnecessary regulatory differences between the US and Canada.
The 9 October request for information (RFI), published in the Federal Register, is part of the continuing work being carried out by the two countries under the auspices of the Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC).
The notice says that OIRA wants suggestions to help it "identify ongoing or emerging areas for which cooperation could reduce the risk of divergence between US and Canadian regulations".
The RCC process was set up in 2011. Under it, the two governments have put forth joint plans
to address chemicals management issues, such as developing common approaches to managing new chemicals through significant new use rules (Snurs) in the US and significant new activity (Snac) regulations in Canada.
