The National Energy Board (NEB) has posted information online that allows Canadians to track company compliance with pipeline approval conditions. The new web page addresses the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development’s (CESD) recommendation that the NEB improve public access to information about company compliance with approval conditions.
The information includes company compliance with pipeline approval conditions from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2015 and is in a downloadable format. Information will be updated monthly and improvements to enhance the user experience, including additional search and view options will be completed shortly.
The NEB imposes conditions to mitigate impacts and potential risks that have been identified through the application process. Companies are required to demonstrate their compliance with NEB conditions and enforcement action may be taken in circumstances of non-compliance with conditions.
“Transparency is the foundation of public trust and, in posting condition data, we continue to support the NEB’s commitment to open and clear regulatory information for all Canadians,” said Peter Watson Chair and CEO, National Energy Board.
