The Remediation Regulation will be available on the Queen's Printer on or shortly after January 1, 2019: http://www.qp.alberta.ca/
 
In 2019, Alberta Environment and Parks will be accepting applications for Limited and Site-based Remediation Certificates and Tier 2 compliance letters. For more information on the Remediation Certificate Program and the application forms and guides, please refer to the following site:

The Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) continues to require all substance releases that may cause, is causing, or has caused an adverse effect be remediated or managed in accordance with applicable legislation.  EPEA also requires that any release of a substance into the environment that may cause, is causing or has caused an adverse effect be reported, as is further described in the Release Reporting Regulation.
 
More information about Alberta Environment and Parks' administration of the Remediation Regulation will be developed and released over the course of 2019, and will be made available at the following site:  http://aep.alberta.ca/land/programs-and-services/reclamation-and-remediation/contaminant-management/remediation/part-four-regulatory-closure.aspx
