Adjudicative Modernization Committee - Term Two

In June 2021, the OEB announced the establishment of the Adjudicative Modernization Committee (AMC), a stakeholder committee that can be called upon to provide early advice to senior management and the Chief Commissioner and serve as a forum for informal discussions with industry stakeholders on matters related to adjudication process and policy. This committee is representative of large and small rate regulated utilities and consumer representatives who typically participate in the OEB’s adjudicative processes.

AMC provides early perspectives, 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 continuous improvement efforts. A specific focus of AMC is to consider best practices and approaches to adjudication that enhance the OEB’s efficiency and effectiveness in delivering on its mandate. It provides early perspective on a broad range of adjudicative matters.

After a successful and productive first term, the AMC remains an integral part of the OEB's Stakeholder Engagement Framework. It is now in its second term.
