Dear Mr. Anderson:
Canada Energy Regulator (CER)
Contractor Oversight – Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC (TMPU)
Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) Plan Audit Close-out Letter
In accordance with subsection 103(3) of the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, the CER conducted a compliance audit of the TMPU’s contractor oversight starting on 27 September 2019. The audit examined aspects of TMPU’s management system as it related to contractor oversight of both its ongoing operations as well as the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. The key objective of the audit was to verify that TMPU had developed a Management System as required by the Canadian Energy Regulator Onshore Pipeline Regulations for the effective management of the hazards and associated risks associated with effective contractor oversight.
The CER issued its Final Audit Report (Report) to TMPU on 31 July 2020.
The CER conducted follow-up compliance verification activities to verify implementation and compliance. The results of the final Implementation Assessment (IA) activities are contained in the IA Report attached to this letter. The Report indicates that TMPU has implemented its CAPA Plan as approved.
The CER now considers this audit to be closed. TMPU is accountable to maintain compliance throughout the life cycle of its regulated facilities. The CER will verify ongoing compliance through future compliance verification activities. If you require any further information or clarification, please contact Darryl Pederson, Lead Auditor, at .
