Download Discussion Paper 7: Emergency Prevention, Preparedness And Response: Tools and Requirements
- In your opinion, are the existing emergency preparedness and response tools and requirements sufficient? If not, what additional tools or requirements are needed?
- What are your views with respect to the absolute liability limits that should apply regardless of whether a pipeline release was the company’s fault (particularly $1 billion for major oil pipeline companies)?
- In addition to information the NEB currently makes public about compliance and enforcement, is there additional information that should be made available over the lifecycle of a regulated project? If so, what?
