Harmonization of Waste Management and Memorandum of Understanding Between the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board and Alberta Environment

May 31, 2000

The Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) and Alberta Environment (AENV) have developed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the harmonization of waste management in Alberta. The MOU is intended to clarify the jurisdictional roles of the EUB and AENV, reduce regulatory duplication, promote an equivalent level of environmental protection and public safety, and reduce liability through appropriate waste management.

The MOU outlines guiding principles that the EUB and AENV have agreed to implement to harmonize requirements surrounding the management of oilfield and nonoilfield wastes. The harmonization agreements include the division of regulatory responsibilities based on the type of waste management facility or activity.

Questions regarding the MOU should be directed to either the EUB at (403) 297-6952 or AENV at (780) 427-5883.
