such returns, information and other things respecting the manufacture and sale of wine as are specified under clause 11(1)(c).
 Pursuant to its authority under s. 5(1)(a), (b) and (c), the
VQAO passed rules setting out the terms, descriptions and designations that it regulates, as well as setting out the quality standards and other requirements for using those terms, descriptions
and designations (the “Quality Rules”). The Quality Rules were
approved by the Minister and are known as Rules of Vintners
Quality Alliance Ontario Relating to Terms for VQA Wine, O Reg.
406/00 (“Regulation 406”).
 The VQAO passed “Rules made pursuant to clauses 5(1)(d)
and (e) of the Act for approval of the use of Terms, Descriptions
and Designations” (the “Approval Rules”). It is these rules that
include the requirement for a taste test. In particular, s. 3(1) of
the Approval Rules states:
3(1) VQA Ontario shall issue an approval to a manufacturer to use the
terms, descriptions and designations set out in the rules referred to in
O.Reg 406/00 (Rules) for a wine for which the approval relates if VQA
Ontario is satisfied that the manufacturer meets all the requirements of
O.Reg. 406/00 (Rules) based on,
(a) Passing a review conducted by VQA Ontario of the labeling and
container of the wine for which the approval relates to ensure com-
pliance with O.Reg. 406/00 (Rules);
(b) Passing a taste test of the wine conducted by a VQA Ontario Tast-
ing Panel on a ready-to-bottle tank sample or a finished bottle
sample of the wine; and
(c) Passing a laboratory analysis of the wine conducted by the desig-
nated person to determine if the wine is in compliance with O.Reg.
406/00 (Rules) and the LCBO’s guidelines for Chemical Analysis, as
amended from time to time.
 The Applicant submits that by imposing a taste test the
VQAO is imposing quality standards, which were not incorporated into the Quality Rules. According to the Applicant, the
VQAO’s ability to pass Approval Rules (which do not require ministerial approval) is limited to purely administrative or procedural
matters (such as what forms must be filled out) and cannot operate as a means of imposing quality standards that the Minister
has not approved. Since the taste test requirement did not receive
ministerial approval it cannot stand.
 The VQAO and the Ministry submit that the taste test
does not impose new quality standards; it, like the laboratory
test, is a means of ensuring compliance with the quality standards set out in the Quality Rules, or Regulation 406. As such, the
requirement was properly enacted under s. 5(1)(d) and did not
need ministerial approval.
