NEB Finalizes New Pipeline Regulation

Posted on

The National Energy Board (NEB) has finalized an order directing all of its regulated companies to make emergency management program information publicly available in an online format by July 31, 2017.

“The NEB is ensuring that Canadians have full access to emergency management program information of the companies we regulate,” Peter Watson, Chair and Chief Executive Officer, National Energy Board, said.

The Order also directs companies to confirm with the NEB by August 15, 2017 that all the required emergency management program information has been published online.

All NEB-regulated company emergency management programs must include the following key elements:

  • Policy and Commitment
  • Goals and Objectives
  • Public Safety Information
  • An Emergency Procedures Manual
  • Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Controls
  • Clean-up and Remediation information
  • Stakeholder Liaison to Prepare for Emergencies
  • Continuing Education
  • Training and Exercises
  • Incident Management System

Earlier this month, the NEB also proposed changes that will require companies to provide additional emergency response detail during the pipeline application phase of a project.
