This seminar is designed for land agents, land administrators, operations engineers as well as any other personnel who may be responsible for the participant involvement requirements associated with AER licence applications.
The AER (the "Regulator") believes that appropriate notification and public consultation must be conducted well in advance of the submission of an application to the AER. It must be thorough enough to allow all parties who are affected to be sufficiently aware of not only the proposed project, but the Regulator process as well. The Regulator believes that the public must have sufficient information to participate meaningfully in the decision making process, to voice their concerns and have their concerns heard and properly addressed, and if possible, resolved. The proponent's information must be extensive, consistent, factual and must be disclosed in a timely manner, and if the proposal is part of a larger project, the proponent should be prepared to discuss the entire project and explain how its components compliment other energy development plans in the area. This seminar addresses the Regulator's facility application requirements and specifically the public consultation requirements, the facilitation and ADR processes and an overview of the AER hearing process including a review of recent AER Decisions.
Registration Fee includes beverages and snacks.
