As per the Decision Notice posted by the MOECC April 24, 2018

The amendments to Ontario Regulation 455/09 has:
•Changed how often facilities have to review their toxic reduction plans:•The first plan review cycle is now extended to six years, with plan reviews due on December 31, 2019.
•The second plan review cycle is now four years later, with plan reviews due on December 31, 2023.
•After 2023, facilities will return to the original timing to review their toxic reduction plans every five years.
•Simplified the information facilities are required to include in their plans:•Facilities are no longer required to include all the previous years' accounting records since the current plan was created. These records will continue to still be available.
•Only the previous year's accounting records are required.
•Better aligned the Toxic Reduction Program with the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) reporting extensions and administrative data updates i.e. North American Industry Classification System codes, spatial coordinates, and emails.
