Agricultural Environmental Management Code of Practice

On February 28, 2019, the Code of Practice for Agricultural Environmental Management replaced the Agricultural Waste Control Regulation (AWCR). BC Agriculture Council (BCAC) has partnered with the Province of BC to assist communicating the key changes related to AEMCoP.

There are new tools already developed to support implementation with more to come. Please ensure to keep your eyes and ears open for any updates on tips and tools available to you through emails, websites, regional info sessions, industry events, and more.

We will be posting news, updates, tools and resources here on our website as communication is rolled out over the next year (and beyond). Please check back regularly for updates.
