The Adjudicative Modernization Committee (AMC) was established in June 2021.

The AMC will provide advice, input and feedback regarding matters such as the Rules of Practice and Procedure and related Practice Directions, Filing Requirements, Guidelines, procedural practices (including matters managed by the Registrar), and other matters relating to the OEB’s adjudicative function and its modernization efforts. A specific focus of the AMC will be to consider best practices and approaches to adjudication that enhance the OEB’s efficiency and effectiveness in delivering on its mandate. It will provide early perspectives and advice on any matters within the purview of the Chief Commissioner. The AMC represents one of a number of advisory mechanisms available to help inform the OEB’s thinking as it continues to enhance adjudicative processes and formulate efficient and effective adjudicative policy.

The AMC will include industry knowledgeable persons from both the natural gas and electricity sectors. The Committee will be representative of Ontario’s diverse range of rate regulated utilities. AMC will strive to achieve a balance of views among utilities in the natural gas and electricity sectors, and customer representatives.

This is an opportunity for stakeholders to provide direct input to the OEB at early stages, including to the Chief Commissioner.
