Compliance and Enforcement

The National Energy Board is committed to providing information on the safety of the pipelines and facilities it regulates, including information on its compliance and enforcement actions.

The NEB enforces regulatory requirements in order to obtain compliance, deter future non-compliance, and prevent harm by using the most appropriate tool or tools available. In 2011, the NEB began proactively posting information on its compliance and enforcement activities with the goal of providing all relevant information related to its compliance and enforcement actions, in a manner that is clear and accessible.

Specifically, the NEB publishes in the table below:

  • NEB Audits of company operations;
  • Inspection Officer Orders;
  • Incident Investigation Reports published by the Board;
  • Information related to Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMPs);
  • Board Orders (related to safety and environmental protection issues);
  • Board Letters or Directives (related to safety and environmental protection issues);
  • Corrective Action Plans related to the above; and
  • Other relevant documents, including any significant correspondence.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES: The National Energy Board is bound by the Official Languages Act and relevant Treasury Board policies. However, some material on these pages originates with organizations not subject to the Official Languages Act and is made available on this site in the language in which it was written.
