The NEB regulatory framework applies to all core responsibilities and is comprised of applicable Acts, regulations, guidance materials, documents, as well as certificates, orders and other regulatory instruments used to regulate the industry. We develop and communicate regulations, guidance materials, and related processes to regulated companies and the public.
