The Interim Order is available under Government notices on the Canada Gazette website.
The Council Order with an explanatory note providing additional details on the Interim Order can also be found under Orders in Council on the Canada Gazette website.
Due to the Interim Order put in place by the Minister, ECCC will be putting a hold on the processing of applications for authorization to use the National Emissions Mark and Canada-Unique submissions for trailers until further notice.
