Compliance and enforcement

Ensuring regulated utilities comply with AUC decisions, orders, rules and relevant legislation

The Alberta Utilities Commission has recently resolved the following compliance and enforcement matters.

The Commission’s enforcement staff conduct a preliminary examination of all complaints that appear to involve a contravention of Alberta’s utility laws, and Commission orders, decisions and rules. Many of those complaints are resolved without the need for further investigation or enforcement action.

If it appears that a violation of law or rule can be proven and the information is sufficient to warrant further action, then a designated enforcement Commission member (a member of the regulatory tribunal) is assigned to the file and decides whether further investigation is warranted.

The following matters were resolved as a result of Commission investigations.
