E2 Plan Preparation Checklist

BENEFITS

The federal Environmental Emergency Regulations—commonly known as the E2 (for Environmental Emergency) Regulations—require companies to have environmental emergency or E2 plans under certain circumstances to ensure an effective response to a spill or other environmental incident. In Dec. 2011, the government updated the E2 Regulations, including some of the requirements for E2 plans.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

This E2 Plan Preparation Checklist is based on one in Environment Canada’s guidelines. You can use it to ensure that your facility’s plan complies with all of the requirements—new and old.
