Regulatory Stock Review Plan – Designated Company Cost Recovery Regulations
Enabling Act:Canadian Energy Regulator Act (CER Act); Pipeline Safety Act
Rationale: New regulations will be created as required by the Pipeline Safety Act.
Narrative: On June 18, 2015, the Pipeline Safety Act received Royal Assent. Work commenced at that time to make regulations to recover costs, expenses and damages associated with a pipeline release when a company has been “designated” by the Governor in Council (GIC). With the coming into force of the CER Act on August 28, 2019 the regulations will be aligned with, and come into force under, the CER Act.
Date of last review or amendment: New regulation
Targeted start for review: 2016
Stakeholder Feedback: During engagement conducted January 8 – February 14, 2018, stakeholders proposed that regulations for designated company cost recovery should mirror the existing Cost Recovery Regulations. Stakeholders also recommended that there should be alternative methods to cost recover, but no examples were provided.
