If action is required to be taken in respect of a parcel of Crown land, it is first necessary to establish what authority is needed to take the proposed action and whether the land is Crown land. This is especially important in respect of land that is not formally recorded on any public land record.

This standard sets out requirements to establish the authority to take action in respect of Crown land, establish the status of a parcel of Crown land, and record, verify, and update the information about Crown land in a way that ensures the information is readily retrievable.

This standard is intended to ensure that when a responsible officer takes action in respect of Crown land, that person has the proper authority to take that action and has confirmed the status of the land as Crown land and that all records in relation to that Crown land are correct, retrievable, and verifiable.
