Tour Reports Available in PDF Format

The ERCB is pleased to announce that Tour Reports are now available in PDF format.  Effective August 10th 2011, access to the original paper documents will no longer be allowed and the photocopy service for Tour Reports will be discontinued.

The change to PDF format will allow improved accessibility and security with respect to the original report. The initiative will also save more than 800,000 pieces of paper a year.

Tour Reports will be scanned to PDF format upon request.

All orders must be submitted using the Tour Request Order Form . Click on the Publications tab and the order form is located on the left side of the page.  When submitting your order, please be aware of the following:

  • UWIs should be listed in the space provided using the standard format:
    LE/LSD-Section-Township-Range-Meridian/ES (00/00-00-000-00W0/0).
     
  • Invalid UWI’s will not be fulfilled. The rest of your order will be processed as normal.
     
  • After submitting your order, any requests for additional Tour Reports should be submitted using a new order form.
     
  • We will continue to process orders at a rate of 10 reports per customer per day. Customer orders exceeding this amount will be processed as quickly as possible without delaying other customer orders.
     
  • Delivery options are outlined in the order form. Please indicate your preference in the space provided.
     
  • All orders will require advance payment. The price is $42/report.
     

All requests to view original Tour Reports must be completed by August 10th.  No access to the original document will be allowed from this date.  Until August 9, we will continue to process viewing orders at a rate of 10 reports per customer per day.  Customer orders exceeding this amount will be processed as quickly as possible without delaying other customer orders. If you have not viewed your order by the end of day August 9, it will not be possible to view the original document.  You will have the option to request a Tour Report in PDF format using the Tour Request Order Form for any unfulfilled orders.
