The BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) is simplifying the process for submitting Emergency Response Plans (ERP) and plan updates.

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 25, 2020

The BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) is simplifying the process for submitting Emergency Response Plans (ERP) and plan updates. Effective 8:00 a.m. on May 25, 2020, all documents currently submitted using the FTP process must be submitted via the eSubmission online portal.

This change simplifies the submissions process for industry, eliminating the need to request special access to the FTP portal. Permit holders will be able to administer access within their own organization. Users submitting plans in eSubmission will require the “Notices” security role. Users who do not have this role will need to contact their company administrator to have this role assigned in KERMIT. Refer to the eSubmission Reference Guide for more information about creating accounts and obtaining security roles, and the Company Administration.

The May 2020 updates to the Emergency Management Manual will reflect the changes found in this release. In addition, an updated eSubmission User Guide is available on the Commission’s website.

There are no changes to the existing ERP requirements for updates, content or formats. Hard copy submissions of each ERP will still be required, and can be sent concurrently with the electronic format, or following notification that the electronic version has been accepted.
