EPAP adopted the AER’s Voluntary Self-Disclosure (VSD) process. This process allows an operator to make a self-disclosure of noncompliance and thereby pre-empt a formal AER noncompliance finding. The VSD process is described in detail in Directive 019 – Compliance Assurance.
Provided that the operator completes the proposed remediation plan on schedule, the operator avoids a formal AER noncompliance finding.
The AER’s EPAP system includes functionality for submitting and managing VSD’s.
To invite a Corvelle consultant to your office to describe when to use Voluntary Self-Disclosures and when not to, please contact us.
