Regulatory Stock Review Plan – Section 335 Cost Apportionment Regulatory Tool

Enabling Act: Canadian Energy Regulator Act (CER Act)

Rationale: New regulatory tool to address the apportionment of costs directly incurred as a result of parties working near CER-regulated pipelines under the proposed CER Act.

Narrative: Under the CER Act, the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) has authority to make regulations that address the apportionment of costs directly incurred as a result of parties working near CER-regulated pipelines (related to construction or ground disturbance). The CER, under the CER Act, will also have the authority to give direction governing the apportionment of these costs by order.

This regulatory initiative is in the early stages of development.

Date of last review or amendment: New regulatory tool

Targeted start for review: 2019
