  1. On August 15, 2022, the CER Inspection Officer requested through Information Request (IR), a copy of the Enbridge, Regina area LP Risk Register. The requested due date for the IR was originally stated as August 17, 2022, and at the request of Enbridge Senior Compliance Advisor, the due date was extended to August 24, 2022. As of August 24, 2022, the requested document was still not submitted, and without justification or prior conversation to inform the CER IO there would be delays etc.
    1. The CER IO requires the requested document to assess for a demonstration of hazard identification processes, as related to inspection activities pursuant to CVA 2223-022. 
    2. The CER IO views the requested risk register document, as what should be a readily available document for applicable stakeholders, such as a CER Inspection Officer. The delay in providing the requested document, in its entirety, is not acceptable.
