                                  Compliance Work Group - A compliance monitoring program for standards has been
                                  completed and is being used to develop an implementation plan for 2009. The program
                                  was developed with extensive stakeholder consultation at 10 meetings of the workgroup
                                  over eight months. The program is well received and supported by the stakeholders.

                                  ISO Rule 12 is approved and enables monitoring of reliability standards as established in
                                  the compliance monitoring program. Compliance monitoring will be implemented for
                                  each of the standards prior to the effective date of the standard. Standards under
                                  approval have effective dates well into 2009, at which time compliance monitoring will
                                  be initiated.

                                  The ARC compliance working group has met its original mandate of providing input and
                                  advice in establishing the Compliance Monitoring Program and the Implementation
                                  Program for Alberta. Bi-monthly meetings will be scheduled with the compliance working
                                  group to discuss key issues related to compliance and the implementation of the
                                  programs. More…
