National Energy Board Draft Filing Manual Change in Class Location Reporting Guidelines

National Energy Board Draft Filing Manual Change in Class Location Reporting Guidelines

Oct. 13, 2017 to Nov. 14, 2017 – The Board is updating Guide E of the Filing Manual to clarify its expectations for changes in class location for existing pipelines. The proposed amendments provide additional clarity for regulated companies on the information required by the Board when there is a need for a class location change. In addition, the Board believes these changes will allow for greater efficiency in its review of these types of applications and greater efficiency in eventual implementation by the company of any measures required to enhance public safety and environmental protection. The proposed changes to Guide E are based on learnings from prior reviews of filings relating to changes in class location. They address the need for companies to provide the Board with a timely and complete assessment of the increase in risk following a change in class location, and a plan with proposed measures to reduce the risk, with associated timelines.

The Draft Revised Event Reporting Guidelines (the Draft Revised Guidelines) dated June 2017 are the product of the feedback mentioned above.
