Regulatory Training

IDB Training Sessions

ICORE partnered with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to develop a six-session training program, which provides regulators in Latin America with the knowledge required to effectively oversee the responsible development of their hydrocarbon resources in alignment with government policies.

The first of these sessions was held in Calgary, Alberta in June 2018, where 20 attendees from Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Guyana, and Suriname spent two days learning about regulatory best practices from Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) subject matter experts. The session focused on principles of regulatory excellence and governance, foundations of hydrocarbon regulation, and an introduction to risk-based regulation. ICORE’s second session with IDB will be held in Bogota, Colombia, in November 2018.

In recognition of ICORE’s depth of technical expertise, IDB is now working with several countries within its network to directly assist ICORE in building a regulatory community of practice.

Mexico Course Delivery

As part of an extensive relationship, ICORE continues to support Mexico’s energy sector by providing expert insights into Canada’s best practices in hydrocarbon regulation. For two years, ICORE has collaborated with Mexico's national regulatory agencies – the National Hydrocarbon Commission (CNH), Energy Ministry (SENER), and the National Agency of Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection of the Hydrocarbons Sector (ASEA) – on strategic and operational issues. In August 2018, at the request of the Government of Mexico, ICORE delivered two technical courses to the regulatory community in Mexico in partnership with the Universidad Panamericana.

Through this bilateral relationship, ICORE has also been able to aid the Government of Canada in importing best practices and advancing critical energy sector initiatives.

University of Alberta Partnership

In June 2017, ICORE entered into a formal relationship with the University of Alberta to facilitate knowledge transfer and professional development activities between the two organizations. The relationship promotes development of specialization in regulatory practices for the hydrocarbon sector, collaboration on regulatory excellence certifications and accreditation, contributes to regulatory innovation, and establishes regulatory excellence-focused events and seminars.

Regulatory Exchange

Regulatory Exchange Portal

Through collaboration with our members, we’ve discovered that there are several, common regulatory challenges and concerns shared within the global regulatory community. ICORE’s Innovation Portal is a virtual workspace that encourages members from around the globe to share, discuss, debate, and collaborate on common regulatory issues.

SAIT Curriculum Build

In January 2018, ICORE partnered with the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) to develop a number of courses on regulation. These courses focused on the fundamentals of stakeholder engagement and unconventional resource development.

The stakeholder engagement courses were then delivered to regulatory specialists in Mexico City in coordination with Universidad Panamericana.

Regulatory Innovation

Innovation Lab

New ways of exploring and understanding regulatory challenges are one of ICORE’s central tenets, and platforms like our Innovation Lab are built to encourage and make the best use of Regulatory Diplomacy amongst our members. Built and run by regulators, the ICORE Innovation Lab connects the regulatory community around common issues. It integrates regulators with researchers, stakeholders, policymakers, and funders to pilot prototypes in real regulatory situations. From testing processes that have been applied successfully in one jurisdiction to exploring new trends in technology or developing brand new solutions, regulatory innovation takes many forms.

White Paper: Regulatory Transformation in an Age of Disruption

ICORE developed a White Paper on how regulatory excellence in Canada can shape a just, prosperous, and sustainable future. The paper touches on Canada’s opportunity to shape global regulatory policy and how ICORE intends to play a role. Download the white paper here.
