Appendix A: Authorities Having Jurisdiction has been updated.

Appendix D: Spill Reporting - The owner or operator of a storage tank system who discovers, suspects or is notified by any person of a leak or possible leak shall immediately notify the authority having jurisdiction by telephone and provide the information requested by the authority having jurisdiction. Since environmental emergencies or occurrences are often local in nature and in order to reduce notification burden, the Canadian environmental notification system uses federal-provincial/territorial 24 hour authorities as the first point of contact. In turn, these authorities notify Environment Canada, except in Québec where both authorities must be called.
