Consultation has concluded

The Alberta Utilities Commission has amended Rule 016: Review of Commission Decisions as part of its continuous effort to implement process efficiencies identified in the Report of the AUC Procedures and Processes Review Committee. Rule 016 sets out the process that is applied when the Commission exercises its discretionary authority to review its own decisions, on its own initiative or at the request of a party. The Commission amended Rule 016 to clarify the circumstances in which a review will be considered and to enhance the efficiency of the review process.

The Commission has amended Rule 016 in accordance with Section 10 of the Alberta Utilities Commission Act, which allows the Commission to make rules respecting the review of any decision or order made by it, including the criteria that the Commission may use to determine whether to review a decision or order. Namely, the Commission has amended Rule 016 to:

  • Remove from the scope of a Commission review errors of law or jurisdiction.
  • Change the filing deadline for review and variance applications to 30 days after the original decision is issued.
  • Introduce page limits for applications and reply submissions.

Please see Bulletin 2021-11 for more details.
