Roundtable 2022: Charting the AUC’s progress on regulatory burden reduction

Consultation has concluded


The AUC held its first regulatory burden roundtable with key stakeholders in October 2019. The discussions were insightful and productive and led to material changes to the AUC’s regulatory processes.

While transformation of the AUC’s processes is ongoing, the AUC demonstrated marked improvements in certain areas that were identified in the feedback received from stakeholders. For example, full-cycle proceeding time for rates applications has decreased significantly and streamlined processes have been adopted to deal with many routine applications, resulting in less regulatory burden for participants. These improvements translate into greater certainty for stakeholders and promote prospective ratemaking.

The AUC held its second roundtable on reducing regulatory burden on March 10, 2022. The roundtable focused on assertive case management, mediated and negotiated settlements and performance metrics for rate cases. The roundtable was convened as part of the AUC’s ongoing efforts to continuously assess the effectiveness and efficiency of our regulatory processes. Stakeholder feedback on our progress is essential to ensuring the continued evolution of our processes in accordance with the AUC’s public interest mandate.

Chair Carolyn Dahl Rees issued a letter to all stakeholders on March 23, 2022, to summarize the key takeaways from the roundtable and to thank stakeholders for their ongoing support and assistance as the AUC continues to make improvements to its processes.
