Canadian Aviation Regulations
511.07 (1) The applicable standards for the issuance of a type certificate in respect of an aeronautical product are
(a) subject to subsection (2), the standards of airworthiness specified in this Part that were in force
(i) subject to section 511.20, on the date of application for the type certificate, or
(ii) if the effective period of an application for a type certificate is extended under paragraph 511.06(2)(b), then the date of application under subparagraph (i) is — for the purposes of determining the standards in force — deferred for the same period of time.
(b) any special conditions specified by the Minister as being necessary to ensure that the type design will provide a level of safety equivalent to the level that would result from compliance with the standards of airworthiness in force on the date of application for the type certificate, if
(i) the aeronautical product has novel or unusual design features, or
(ii) there are no applicable standards of airworthiness for the aeronautical product; and
(c) except for aircraft in respect of which certification is requested in the restricted category for agricultural or fire-fighting operations, the aircraft emissions standards specified in Subpart 16.
(2) An applicant may, with the approval of the Minister, elect to include any changes to the standards of airworthiness specified in paragraph (1)(a) that are made after the date chosen in accordance with that paragraph on condition that any related changes are also included and that, on the basis of that inclusion, the Minister approves the election.
