Dissemination of Information

The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) is a body subject to the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information (RSQ, c. A-2.1). Consequently, it is also subject to the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information.

To meet the requirements of this Regulation, the BNQ has established this section. The purpose is to group under the same tab all the information that must be distributed under the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information.

Offer of services, programs and forms

The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) is a member body of Canada’s National Standards System and carries on its activities in the following fields:

  • standardization;
  • certification of products, processes, services and people;
  • certification of management systems.

We invite you to visit our website on this subject.

Contracts

  • Contracts

The BNQ, through the Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ), distributes in accordance with section 4(13) of the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information the list of contracts for $25,000 and over that it has entered into (to come). The CRIQ also invites you to consult the Système officiel d’appel d’offres du gouvernement du Québec (official public tendering system of the Gouvernement du Québec), because we regularly call on this system.

Public interest documents

The BNQ distributes many information documents concerning its offer of services and general interest documents. We invite you to explore our website to learn more.

The Work Program document on our website indicates the BNQ documents that are in preparation or revision.

Finally, documents tabled in the National Assembly by the CRIQ may deal with the activities of the Bureau de normalisation du Québec. We invite you to consult them.

Personal information

  • Classification Plan

Under section 4(4) of the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information, the BNQ is required to publish its document classification plan established in accordance with the Archives Act (RSQ, c. A-21.1). We invite you to consult this Classification Plan. Since the BNQ is an administrative unit of the Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ), this classification plan is also the CRIQ’s classification plan.

  • Inventory of Personal Information Files

In accordance with section 4(5) of the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information, the BNQ must distribute on its website the inventory of its personal information files established under section 76 of the Act. We invite you to view this Inventory of Personal Information Files.

  • Register of Releases of Personal Information

In accordance with section 67.3 of the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information (RSQ, c. A-2.1), the BNQ is required to maintain a register of certain releases of personal information made without the consent of the persons concerned. Section 4(6) of the Regulation respecting the distribution of information and the protection of personal information requires the distribution of this register on the BNQ website. You can therefore view the Register of Releases of Personal Information.

The requests for access to BNQ documents or to any other information covered by the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information (RSQ, c.
