Dear Mr. From:

  • National Energy Board (NEB or Board)
    Corrective and Preventive Action Plan (CAPA Plan) for Review
    Many Islands Pipe Lines (Canada) Limited

On 3 October 2017, the Board informed Many Islands Pipe Lines (Canada) Limited (MIPL(C)L) of its intent to audit its NEB regulated facilities. During this focused audit, the Board evaluated Emergency Management and related inputs and outputs as captured in sub-element 2.1 Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Control of the NEB Management System and Protection Program Audit Protocol.

The findings of the Audit are based upon an assessment of whether MIPL(C)L was compliant with the regulatory requirements contained within:

  • the National Energy Board Act and its associated regulations, including;
  • the National Energy Board Onshore Pipeline Regulations (OPR);
  • Any conditions contained within applicable Board certificates or orders issued by the Board (collectively referred to as, Legal Requirements).

MIPL(C)L submitted its proposed Corrective and Preventive Action Plan (CAPA Plan) that describes the methods and timing for addressing the non-compliances identified through this audit on 21 June, 2018. The Board has completed its review and hereby approves the CAPA Plan with the amendments outlined in the attached Table 1.

Over the next few months, the NEB will review the documents and deliverables as outlined by MIPL(C)L’s CAPA Plan. Each finding will be considered resolved when all of the deficiencies as described in the report have been addressed in accordance with the legal requirements and the commitments and the actions described in the CAPA Plan. Implementation Assessment meetings will be organized to discuss actions taken. In addition, the NEB will verify that the CAPAs include measures to prevent recurrence.

The Board will make the approved CAPA Plan public and will continue to monitor and assess all of MIPL(C)L’s corrective actions with respect to this audit until they are fully implemented. The Board will also continue to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of MIPL(C)L’s management system and programs through targeted compliance verification activities as a part of its on-going regulatory mandate.

If you require any further information or clarification, please contact Marnie Sparling, Lead Auditor, at 403-629-6394.

Yours truly,

Original signed by

Sheri Young Secretary of the Board
