Amendments to Manual 013: Compliance and Enforcement Program
Release Date: November 06, 2019
Today we released a new edition of Manual 013: Compliance and Enforcement Program. This manual provides details on how we administer compliance assurance, and it guides AER staff in the development and execution of compliance processes and procedures. Since the original release of this manual in February 2016, our compliance assurance program has evolved, requiring amendments to some of the sections. Some grammar and formatting was also amended for clarity.
Major changes include the following:
- Section 3 has been expanded to discuss compulsory reporting as one way we become aware of noncompliances.
- Sections 4 and 5 have been merged and simplified.
- The following compliance and enforcement tools in section 6 have been clarified: notice of noncompliance, warning, and administrative sanctions.
- The section on administrative penalties has been expanded to include economic benefit.
- Section 6 now includes information on the compliance dashboard.
