Bulletin – Review of AUC Rule 017

The AUC stated that the Government of Alberta introduced the Red Tape Reduction Act to reduce regulatory burden and improve regulatory efficiency. The AUC explained that agencies, including the AUC, form part of this commitment. The AUC is therefore reviewing not only its processes and procedures, but also its rules in order to reduce the regulatory requirements contained within the rules. This includes a review of AUC Rule 017.

The AUC is proposing amendments to AUC Rule 017 that will:

  • remove references to the capacity market;

  • introduce a new streamlined consultation and application process for making administrative changes to existing Independent System Operator rules; and

  • remove mandatory filing requirements in the rule.

The AUC noted that its review of Rule 017 would consist of a stakeholder consultation involving a written process. The deadline for submitting comments was July 14, 2020.
