ARLINGTON, Va., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA announced the launch of the Canadian EHS Legislative & Regulatory Alert™. This new online subscription-based service provides Canadian regulatory and legislative tracking at every stage in the legal process — including actions of the federal government and every province and territory in Canada — so US-based businesses can track the progress of environmental, health & safety (EHS) laws and regulations impacting their operations in Canada.
The Alert simplifies the act of monitoring and updating proposed, interim, and final regulations, notices, and hearings. Users are able to target the information most critical to their business through citations to Canadian administrative codes, dates of register publication, hearing schedules, effective dates, comment deadlines, and names and telephone numbers of government contacts. Furthermore, Bloomberg BNA provides succinct, plain-English summaries of the complex legislative and regulatory actions, enabling customers to make well-informed decisions and plan the best strategies for their businesses. Special features include alert notices for desired selected topics and jurisdictions, monthly summaries, and links to original full-text documents.
"Canada's constantly changing environmental legal landscape has a real impact on U.S.-based businesses, and environmental concerns have also become a core issue affecting day-to-day business operations," said Robert Shew, vice president and group publisher, EHS and HR publishing divisions, Bloomberg BNA. "Designed to ease the workload and simplify searches for busy professionals, the Alert is a source our customers can rely on to help stay on top of the latest federal, provincial, and territorial developments north of the border that could affect their business."
Major topics covered in the Alert include air, climate change, compliance and enforcement, energy, environmental assessment, hazmat, health and safety, land use, mining, natural resources industries, remediation and redevelopment, sustainable development, transportation, waste, water, and workers' compensation.
