International Power Lines – Power Line Damage Prevention

Regulations

Power Line Crossing Regulations – SOR/95-500

Orders

The CER Act changes power line damage prevention provisions that were in the NEB Act. As a result, the regulations that were made under the NEB Act  (Power Line Crossing Regulations) which provide the process for safely conducting specified activities near international power lines (section 3), require updating. The regulatory development process is ongoing. Two Commission Orders provide for these safety requirements are in place as an interim measure (see below). Section 4 of the Power Line Crossing Regulations remains in force.
