Implementing the CER Act

Every decision or order made by the National Energy Board is considered to have been made under the Canadian Energy Regulator Act and may be enforced as such. Every certificate, licence or permit issued by the National Energy Board is considered to have been issued under the Canadian Energy Regulator Act. Those instruments remain in force for the remainder of the period during which they would have been in force had the Canadian Energy Regulator Act no come into force.

This page will be updated over the coming weeks and months to reflect new procedures, policy and guidance documents related to implementation of the Canadian Energy Regulator Act. Should you need further help, please contact the Canada Energy Regulator (CER).

Regulatory Applications

Every decision or order made by the National Energy Board is considered to have been made under the Canadian Energy Regulator Act and may be enforced as such. Every certificate, license or permit issued by the National Energy Board is considered to have been issued under the Canadian Energy Regulator Act. Those instruments remain in force for the remainder of the period during which they would have been in force had the Canadian Energy Regulator Act not come into force.

Pending Regulatory Applications

If an application was pending before the National Energy Board immediately before the Canadian Energy Regulator Act came into force, the application will be considered by the Canada Energy Regulator in accordance with the National Energy Board Act (see Canadian Energy Regulator Act - Transitional Provisions).

Regulations

Regulations made under the National Energy Board Act remain in force under the Canadian Energy Regulator Act until they are repealed or others made in their stead, as per the Interpretation Act. Updates to regulations are being implemented through a phased approach, starting with the Transitional Regulations for the Purpose of the National Energy Board Cost Recovery Regulations. Our CER “Acts and Regulations” web page will be regularly updated with opportunities to provide feedback on regulatory development and notifications of regulatory changes.

Operations

Consideration of post-approval or operations matters, including condition compliance, will be made as per the Canadian Energy Regulator Act. This includes compliance verification activities such as inspections and audits. Employees previously designated as Inspection Officers by the National Energy Board Act are considered to be designated as Inspection Officers by the Canadian Energy Regulator Act.
