Marginal note:Regulations — exemption
(2) If both an agreement entered into under subsection (1) and a regulation made under paragraph 35(1)(g) relate to the same matter, the regulation does not apply to the person or organization that has entered into the agreement in respect of the matter for which payment is required under the agreement.
(3) When the Minister of Transport enters into an undertaking in respect of a matter for which payment of an amount is required from the other party under the terms of an agreement entered into under subsection (1), the undertaking is deemed, for the purposes of recovering that amount, not to be a duty of the Minister under this Act.
