    One of the key areas of focus as the AER strives towards Regulatory Excellence is ensuring empathic engagement. Part of engaging empathically is making sure that the decisions we make are understood, and that we are being open and transparent in our communications.

    As part of the reclamation certificate application enhancements, we have posted assessment rules to provide examples of how decisions are made. The AER uses risk assessments, also referred to as "assessment rules", to determine the chance of something bad happening (like soil contamination), and, if it does happen, how bad the consequences might be. The assessment rules ensure we are
    able to spend our time appropriately on different aspects of a decision and allocate more time for review when necessary.

    We would appreciate you taking some time to fill out the survey to help us assess if we are providing you with the right kind of information.

    You can check back in the fall to find out more ways to provide feedback!
