New System and Training for Reclamation Certificate Applications

Jun 21, 2016

Effective June 21, 2016, we are implementing new technology to process reclamation certificate applications. Applications must be submitted through the Systems & Tools Portal > Reclamation Certificate Application Tool. To access the on-line tool, applicants must have a DDS account. The DDS administrator (CMSA) is responsible for adding and delegating roles for any companies or individuals submitting applications on their behalf.

With this new technology, we are also altering how these applications are processed. There are now two review levels: baseline (automated) and additional review (manual). The baseline review ensures that the application is complete and meets certain minimum administrative criteria. All applications go through this process. At that point the system determines if additional manual review is needed (based on criteria outlined on www.aer.ca > Abandonment & Reclamation > Reclamation & Remediation). Applications that are more complex will also be routed for additional manual review.

Training sessions on the new application process will be held in both Calgary and Edmonton.
