1Note the Safe Drinking Water Act (SWDA) is not prescribed for applications for investigations under the EBR as it has its own separate investigation process that is similar to the EBR investigation process (see sections 7-13 of O. Reg. 242/05 under the SWDA.)

3The Health Protection and Promotion Act is only prescribed for reviews related to sections 96(1) and (2), sections 96(3)(m) to (t), and subsection 96(3.1) of the Act, and of regulations made under these sections that relate to small drinking water systems.

5 The Endangered Species Act and its regulations are prescribed for the purposes of applications for review, except for a regulation made under section 7 of the Act. (Agreements made under section 22 or 23 of O. Reg. 242/08 under the ESA are explicitly prescribed as being subject to review.)
