Dear Mr. Hardison:
- National Energy Board Corrective and Preventative Action Plan approval
Montreal Pipe Line Limited – CV1819-418
The National Energy Board (Board) hereby approves the Montreal Pipe Line Limited (MPLL) Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) Plan submitted by letter dated 20 March 2019 developed in response to the Board’s findings in the Audit Integrity Management activities report issued on 19 February 2019.
The Board finds MPLL’s proposed approach to addressing the deficiencies by MPLL is acceptable. Accordingly, the Board directs that all corrective actions be completed on or before the dates set out in Table 1 on page 2 of this letter. The Board will verify that the CAPA Plan is systemically applied and will include measures to prevent recurrence.
The Board will make the CAPA Plan public and will continue to monitor and assess all of MPLL’s corrective actions with respect to this audit until they are fully implemented.
During the CAPA review, the NEB will review the deliverables as outlined by MPLL’s CAPA. Each finding will be considered resolved when all of the deficiencies as described in the report have been addressed in accordance with the legal requirements, the commitments and the actions described in the CAPA Plan.
Meetings to discuss CAPA will be organized if required.
