Rule 017: Procedures and Process for Development of ISO Rules and Filing of ISO Rules with the Alberta Utilities Commission

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


The government of Alberta introduced the Red Tape Reduction Act to reduce regulatory burden and improve regulatory efficiency. Agencies, including the Alberta Utilities Commission, form part of this commitment. The AUC has interpreted this responsibility broadly to include the government’s objective to reduce both the number of AUC rules and the regulatory requirements contained within the rules.

The AUC is conducting a rule review and stakeholder consultation on Rule 017: Procedures and Process for Development of ISO Rules and Filing of ISO Rules with the Alberta Utilities Commission to amend the rule to reflect recent changes in government policy and is seeking stakeholder feedback on the following proposed amendments:

  • remove references to the capacity market
  • introduce a new streamlined consultation and application process for making administrative changes to existing ISO rules
  • remove mandatory filing requirements in the rule

The deadline for submitting comments will be Tuesday, July 14, 2020.
