Code of Conduct Compliance Plan
In this decision, the AUC approved the application from Battle River Power Coop (“Battle River”) to amend its Electric Utilities Act Code of Conduct Regulation Compliance Plan (“Compliance Plan”) subject to a change ordered by the AUC.
Pursuant to Subsection 32(2) of the Code of Conduct Regulation (“CCR”), Battle River requested approval of changes to its Compliance Plan to reflect changes introduced to the CCR on November 12, 2020.
The AUC found that the Compliance Plan contained no provision for the creation and retention of the records required for the AUC to carry out its future audits, as required under Section 40 of the CCR. Accordingly, the AUC required that Battle River includes the following text in its Compliance Plan after the policy statement in Section 40.0 “Audit”:
Battle River Power Coop will retain all code of conduct compliance records listed under Appendix A to its Electric Utilities Act Code of Conduct Regulation Compliance Plan for at least three years. The Commission may amend Appendix A from time to time on notice, and absent a registered objection, the proposed changes to the appendix will take effect within ten business days from the date of the notice.
