The government of Canada is delaying the publication of proposed regulations for the liquid fuel class of the Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) to Fall 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a government press release, Environment and Climate Change Canada is continuing to work on the CFS and plans to engage the Clean Fuel Standard Technical Working Group on key regulatory design elements in the spring and summer.
After Part 1 of the CFS is published in the Canada Gazette, there will be a 75-day formal comment period. The government plans to finalize regulations for the liquid fuel class in late 2021, and bring those regulations into force in 2022.
