Industry Safety & Regulations
Canadian pipelines are regulated by The National Energy Board (NEB). As an industry, pipeline companies are required to meet stringent engineering, construction and maintenance regulations to ensure the safety of the system. And close collaboration with organizations such as the various Pilotage Authorities, Government organizations (Transport Canada and Canadian Coast Guard) and Port Metro Vancouver ensure that tankers navigate our local waters safely and are guided in and out of the port by highly-trained and qualified Pilots.
