The Performance Assurance element is a multi-faceted approach consisting of facility
approvals, technical assistance, compliance inspections, and investigation and enforcement.
Approvals and registrations are issued for the construction and operation of drinking
water facilities. Compliance assistance is preventative in nature and encourages
continuous improvement and process optimization. Enforcement addresses instances
when operators or owners fail to fulfill their obligations under their approval.
In all three of these areas staff conduct routine monitoring and inspections to
ensure that they are knowledgeable regarding the approved drinking waterworks systems
within their region.
- Approvals and Registrations
The Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and the accompanying regulations
set out in detail what activities require an approval or registration and the process
for obtaining an approval or registration.
- Technical assistance
The Compliance Assurance Principles consider the needs for compliance assurance
today and into the future and the various factors that drive changes in regulatory
frameworks and strategies and approaches to compliance assurance.
These principles have played a key role in achieving high levels of compliance across all regulated sectors.
