Access to Information Act/Privacy Act Regulatory Amendments Update Schedules of Designated Investigative Bodies
Date: June 24, 2013
On May 31, 2013, the federal government registered Regulations Amending the Access to Information Regulations made under the Access to Information Act. These Regulations amend Schedule I (Investigative Bodies) of the Access to Information Regulations to delete the names of investigative bodies that are no longer in existence and to replace the name of one investigative body with its new name.
On the same date, Regulations Amending the Privacy Regulations made under the Privacy Act were also registered. These Regulations amend Schedules II, III and IV (Investigative Bodies) of the Privacy Regulations to delete names of investigative bodies that are no longer in existence and, where applicable, to replace the names of investigative bodies with their new names.
The amendments to the designated investigative bodies reflect organizational changes in the federal government structure.
The Regulations came into force on the day they were registered.
