NRCan offers ESTMA update
August 11, 2017 - With the first ESTMA reporting cycle coming to a close, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is pleased to announce that, as of August 10, 2017, links to 683 individual, consolidated, and substituted have been published on the NRCan website.
For your information, a number of updates have been provided below. In addition, please note that the ESTMA team is now working on several deliverables that will be available in the coming months, including a summary the results of the electronic survey that was sent out in June and a report on the first year of transparency reporting.
Enrollling with NRCan & ‘NIL’ Reports
ESTMA officials will be following up with the remaining companies that have not yet contacted NRCan for the purposes of ESTMA reporting in the last reporting cycle. Companies meeting the criteria of “Reporting Entity” under section 8 (1) under the Act that have not yet enrolled are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Steps for enrolling are available here.
New compliance FAQs
NRCan has updated the ESTMA FAQs to include additional questions based on common stakeholder comments and inquiries, as well as new information on NRCan’s approach to compliance monitoring and enforcement. The compliance FAQs include NRCan’s validation checklist, which has been published at the following link. Please note that while links to reports that meet the checklist’s requirements have been published on the NRCan website, published reports remain subject to additional compliance reviews and corrective measures may be ordered as necessary. Work on compliance policies and processes is ongoing and additional information will be made public when possible.
Updating the ESTMA implementation tools
Additional opportunities to meet with NRCan in person will be sent out as they become available.
