1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 2.
3. The requirements of this Regulation respecting the number of kilometres indicated on the motor vehicle’s odometer refer to the number of kilometers that, following a mechanical inspection by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec, is entered in the register kept by the Société for entering information on the motor vehicle and its owner.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 3.
4. Motor vehicle manufacturers are classified according to the following categories:
(1)  category A “large volume manufacturer” includes motor vehicle manufacturers whose average sales and leases of new motor vehicles, for the model year for which a classification is established, is greater than 20,000;
(2)  category B “intermediate volume manufacturer” includes motor vehicle manufacturers whose average sales and leases of new motor vehicles, for the model year for which a classification is established, is between 4,501 and 20,000;
(3)  category C “small volume manufacturer” includes motor vehicle manufacturers whose average sales and leases of new motor vehicles, for the model year for which a classification is established, is equal to or less than 4,500.
For the purpose of classifying a motor vehicle manufacturer, the average of its sales and leases of new motor vehicles for a particular model year is obtained by adding the number of new motor vehicles sold or leased by the manufacturer for each of the 3 consecutive model years whose last model year immediately precedes the model year for which a classification is established, and by dividing the total by 3.
The data used to calculate the average used to classify a motor vehicle manufacturer are those registered in its name in the register kept under section 11 of the Act.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 4.
5. The initial classification of a motor vehicle manufacturer that is required to submit a report under section 10 of the Act is established by the Minister for the 2018 model year.
The initial classification of a motor vehicle manufacturer that is not required to submit such report is established by the Minister for the first model year covered by the manufacturer’s first report under section 10 of the Act.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 5.
6. The classification of a large or intermediate volume manufacturer is established by the Minister within 30 days of the deadline provided for in section 10 of the Act, and the classification of a small volume manufacturer, within 30 days of the date on which the Minister receives the manufacturer’s first report under that same section.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 6.
7. Where the classification of a motor vehicle manufacturer is established, the Minister enters it in the register kept under section 11 of the Act and so informs the manufacturer in writing within 15 days of that entry.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 7.
8. For each model year following the model year for which the initial classification of a motor vehicle manufacturer has been established, the Minister re-evaluates the classification within the same period as the period provided for in section 6, and the Minister informs the manufacturer in writing of the results of the evaluation within 15 days of the evaluation.
The evaluation referred to in the first paragraph does not result in a change of category for a motor vehicle manufacturer, except in the cases provided for in section 9.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 8.
9. A motor vehicle manufacturer may be reclassified in a new category if
(1)  for a model year, the average of the manufacturer’s sales and leases of new motor vehicles, calculated in accordance with the second paragraph of section 4, is greater than the maximum value provided for the category in which the manufacturer is classified, and the situation occurs for the 2 following consecutive model years. The same applies if the value of the average is less than the minimum value provided for the category in which the manufacturer is classified;
(2)  the manufacturer has reported incomplete or inaccurate information; or
(3)  a change occurs in the control of the manufacturer.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 9.
10. A motor vehicle manufacturer that finds itself in either of the situations referred to in paragraph 1 of section 9 may be reclassified as of the model year immediately following the third of the model years for which any of the situations re-occurs, in the category just above or, as the case may be, just below the category in which the manufacturer is classified.
A motor vehicle manufacturer that finds itself in the situation referred to in paragraph 2 of section 9 may be reclassified as of the oldest model year for which incomplete or inaccurate information has been provided, in the category corresponding to the real average of its sales and leases for that model year, calculated in accordance with the second paragraph of section 4. In such a situation, the manufacturer will also have to pay to the Minister any sum that would have been paid if its credits had been calculated on the basis of complete and accurate information, and that is claimed by the Minister in accordance with section 47 of the Act.
A motor vehicle manufacturer that finds itself in the situation referred to in paragraph 3 of section 9
(1)  if the change occurs following a merger of its enterprise with one or more motor vehicle manufacturers, the motor vehicle manufacturer resulting from the merger will initially be classified as of the second model year following the model year whose year corresponds to the calendar year during which the change occurred; the classification will be established on the basis of the average, for each model year used for its calculation, of the total of the sales and leases of new motor vehicles of all the manufacturers concerned, calculated in accordance with the second paragraph of section 4; or
(2)  if the change occurs because the motor vehicle manufacturer concerned divested itself of part of its assets for the benefit of one or more motor vehicle manufacturer that acquire them or that are constituted for that purpose, the reclassification of the motor vehicle manufacturer that divested itself of part of its assets and the manufacturers that acquire them as well as the initial classification of those that are constituted for that purpose will be established, for each of them, as of the second model year following the model year whose year corresponds to the calendar year during which the change occurred; the classification will be established, for each of them, on the basis of the average, for each model year used for the calculation, of the sales and leases of new motor vehicles of the motor vehicle models hence sold or leased by the motor vehicle manufacturer concerned by the calculation, the average being calculated in accordance with the second paragraph of section 4.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 10.
11. Where a change occurs in the control of a motor vehicle manufacturer, the manufacturer must so inform the Minister in writing within 30 days of the change.
In the case referred to in subparagraph 2 of the third paragraph of section 10, the manufacturer must also, in the same document, inform the Minister of the agreements entered into with the other motor vehicle manufacturers regarding the distribution of credits entered in its name in the register on the date of the change, so that the Minister may make the necessary modifications.

1217-2017, Div. IO.C. 1217-2017, Div. I.
12. Within 30 days of the deadline provided for in section 10 of the Act, the Minister determines, on the basis of the information reported by the motor vehicle manufacturer, the number of credits that the manufacturer must accumulate for the model year covered by the report and so notify the manufacturer in writing within the same period.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 12.
13. The number of credits that a large or intermediate volume motor vehicle manufacturer must accumulate for a particular model year is determined by means of a percentage of the average of its sales and leases of new motor vehicles for the same model year, using the following equation:
Nc = P x A
where
Nc = the number of credits that the motor vehicle manufacturer must accumulate;
P = the percentage of the average of the sales and leases of new motor vehicles of the manufacturer for the model year concerned;
A = the average of the sales and leases of new motor vehicles of the manufacturer for the model year concerned.
For the purpose of calculating the number of credits that must be accumulated by a motor vehicle manufacturer for a particular model year, the average of its sales and leases of new motor vehicles is obtained by adding the number of new motor vehicles sold or leased by the manufacturer for each of the 3 consecutive model years the last of which precedes by 1 model year the model year for which the number of credits must be determined, and by dividing the total by 3.
The value of the percentage referred to in the first paragraph is determined in the table below, based on the model year concerned by the calculation.
Model yearValue of the percentage (P)

1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 13.
14. As of model year 2020, among the credits that a large volume motor vehicle manufacturer must accumulate for a particular model year, a certain number of the credits may only be accumulated by selling or leasing new or reconditioned zero-emission motor vehicles or new or reconditioned motor vehicles with a range extender, or by acquiring, from another motor vehicle manufacturer, NZEV, RZEV, NVRE or RVRE credits.
The number of credits referred to in the first paragraph is determined using a fraction of the total percentage of the average of its sales and leases of new motor vehicles, using the following equation:
Nc ZEV = Pf ZEV x A
where
Nc ZEV = the number of credits that may only be accumulated by the motor vehicle manufacturer by selling or leasing new or reconditioned zero-emission motor vehicles or new or reconditioned motor vehicles with a range extender, or by acquiring NZEV, RZEV, NVRE or RVRE credits;
Pf ZEV = a fraction of the total percentage of the average used in the equation in section 13;
A = the same average as the average used in the equation in section 13.
The other part of the credits that a large volume motor vehicle manufacturer must accumulate for the model year referred to in the first paragraph may be accumulated by selling or leasing any type of new or reconditioned motor vehicle defined in section 1 or by acquiring, from another motor vehicle manufacturer, credits belonging to any of the categories provided for in section 16.
The fraction of the total percentage of the average referred to in the equation in the second paragraph is determined below, based on the model year concerned by the calculation.

15. A motor vehicle manufacturer may accumulate, by selling or leasing reconditioned motor vehicles, or by acquiring, from another motor vehicle manufacturer, RZEV, RLEV, RVRE or RLSV credits, a maximum of 30% of the total of the credits it must accumulate for each period referred to in section 8 of the Act.
A large volume motor vehicle manufacturer may accumulate
(1)  by selling or leasing new or reconditioned motor vehicles with a range extender, or by acquiring, from another motor vehicle manufacturer, NVRE or RVRE credits, a maximum of 50% of the credits referred to in section 14, that are related to the sale or lease of zero-emission motor vehicles or the acquisition of NZEV or RZEV credits; or
(2)  by selling or leasing new or reconditioned low-speed motor vehicles, or by acquiring, from another motor vehicle manufacturer, NLSV or RLSV credits, a maximum of 25% of the total of the credits it must accumulate for each period referred to in section 8 of the Act.
The total of the credits referred to in the first paragraph and in subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph is calculated in accordance with section 13.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 15; I.N. 2018-03-01.
16. The credits accumulated by a motor vehicle manufacturer are, in the register kept under section 11 of the Act, classified by groups of 3 model years corresponding to the model years referred to in section 8 of the Act, according to the following categories:
(1)  NZEV credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing new zero-emission motor vehicles, excluding low-speed vehicles;
(2)  RZEV credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing reconditioned zero-emission motor vehicles, excluding low-speed vehicles;
(3)  NLEV credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing new low-emission motor vehicles;
(4)  RLEV credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing reconditioned low-emission motor vehicles;
(5)  NVRE credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing new motor vehicles with a range extender;
(6)  RVRE credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing reconditioned motor vehicles with a range extender;
(7)  NLSV credits, that is, the credits accumulated selling or leasing new low-speed motor vehicles;
(8)  RLSV credits, that is, the credits accumulated by selling or leasing reconditioned low-speed motor vehicles.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 16.
17. The credits accumulated by selling or leasing a reconditioned motor vehicle are entered in the register in the name of the motor vehicle manufacturer that sold or leased the vehicle, regardless of its make or model.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 17.
18. The credits accumulated by selling or leasing a low-speed motor vehicle, whether new or reconditioned, may not be used for the purposes of the requirement provided for in the first paragraph of section 14.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 18.
19. On a written request by a motor vehicle manufacturer, the Minister may determine the number of credits that it must accumulate for a particular model year by replacing, in the equations in sections 13 and 14, the average provided for therein by the total number of new motor vehicles of that same model year, entered in the register on the date of the calculation, that the manufacturer sold or leased.
For the Minister to follow up on the motor vehicle manufacturer’s request, the manufacturer must demonstrate, to the Minister’s satisfaction, that the total number of new motor vehicles of the model year covered by its request, that it sold or leased, has, for circumstances beyond its control and that it could not foresee, diminished by not less than 30% in relation to the preceding model year.
The motor vehicle manufacturer’s request must be submitted not later than 30 days before the date provided for in the first paragraph of section 10 of the Act.
A request made under the first paragraph may only be submitted for 2 model years of a series of 8 consecutive model years.

CHARGE
1217-2017, c. IIIO.C. 1217-2017, c. III.
31. The charge referred to in section 8 of the Act, payable to the Minister by every motor vehicle manufacturer that, at the end of the period provided for in that section, has not accumulated the total number of credits that it had to accumulate for the 3 model years covered by that period, is calculated using the following equation:
C = (Nce – Nca) x Vc
where
C = the charge payable by the motor vehicle manufacturer concerned;
Nce = the number of credits that the motor vehicle manufacturer should have accumulated;
Nca = the number of credits accumulated by the motor vehicle manufacturer;
Vc = the value of a credit for calculating the charge.
For calculating the charge, the value of a credit is set at $5,000.
The charge calculated under the first paragraph is payable in one installment.
1217-2017O.C. 1217-2017, s. 31.
32. For the purpose of determining if a motor vehicle manufacturer must pay a charge, the Minister considers the total number of credits that the manufacturer should have accumulated and the total number of those the manufacturer has accumulated for each group of 3 model years covered by a period.
