17.1. When an emitter or a participant changes its legal structure, by merger or otherwise, the person resulting from the change must so notify the Minister as soon as possible. If the change leads to the dissolution of the emitter or participant, the person resulting from the change must, within 30 days of the change, register for the system in accordance with this Chapter. The new emitter or new participant is required, in place of the former emitter or former participant, as the case may be, to meet all the requirements that applied to the former emitter or participant pursuant to this Regulation.
If the change referred to in the first paragraph concerns at least 2 covered emitters or participants, the person resulting from the change must revoke or confirm the mandate of the account representatives and viewing agents referred to in sections 11 and 12 to ensure that their number does not exceed the limits set in those sections.
