On August 29, 2013, OMB invited written public comments on the U.S. – Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council’s progress to date and how to address regulatory divergence between the U.S. and Canada governments. Canada and the U.S. intend to identify opportunities for cooperation that could secure greater alignment between the countries’ regulatory systems.
Stakeholders are asked to comment specifically on issues/sectors that should be considered for future cooperation, including proposals to align regulatory systems, streamline bilateral cooperation, and improve stakeholder engagement. Please see the Federal Register notice for additional key areas where stakeholder insights would be most helpful. Comments are due by Friday, October 11, 2013.
