The National Energy Board (NEB) is engaged in an ongoing collaboration with the Department of Justice Canada (DOJ) in the review process of the Proposed Damage Prevention Regulations (Proposed DPR).

In October 2007, the NEB announced the creation of the Land Matters Consultation Initiative (LMCI). The purpose of LMCI is to provide a forum for all interested parties and the Board to engage in dialogue and generate options to support the long-term responsible development of the energy sector, while respecting the rights of those affected. During public meetings held in the Spring 2008, LMCI staff gathered information related to a number of issues. This information will be considered as we progress in the next steps for the Proposed DPR.

Once the review has been completed with DOJ, details about the next opportunity for public comment will be communicated.

Information about the NEB's Proposed DPR, including draft regulations, letters, questions and answers are available on the NEB website at Click on "Acts and Regulations", then "Regulations under Review" and scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Draft Damage Prevention Regulations". This link will take you to the section entitled "National Energy Board Pipeline Crossing Regulations, Part I and Part II".
