Laser Talk: Our US-Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council Submission

Laser Talk: Our US-Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council Submission

From November 25, 2017, to January 8, 2018, the Government of Canada invited stakeholders to share their views on how to address regulatory differences between the US and Canada through the Regulatory Cooperation Council. In particular, Canadians were invited to comment on issues to be considered for future cooperation, including proposals to align existing regulatory systems, streamlining of unnecessary or duplicative procedures, and areas that will be impacted by new technologies, which are not yet regulated.
