Closed OEB Reviews
Summary of New or Amended Reliability Standards and Criteria for which OEB Review Period is Closed
The IESO is responsible for communicating to market participants new or amended reliability standards and criteria which may be subject to the Ontario Energy Board's (OEB) review. The OEB or any person may make an application for review of a reliability standard as long as actions are initiated within the time prescribed in sections 36.1 and 36.2 of the Electricity Act, 1998:
- IESO posts a new or amended reliability standard on its website within seven days of it being notified by the standards authority.
- There is a 21-day window for any market participant, including the IESO, to apply to the OEB for review of the reliability standard. The OEB is also able to initiate its own review within 120 days.
- If there is no review, the standard comes into effect under the Market Rules upon the enforcement date of the reliability standard.
- If reviewed, the OEB has the authority to stop the standard from applying in Ontario and to refer it back to the standards authority.
The table below provides a summary of new or amended reliability standards and criteria for which the OEB review process is closed.
