The BCUC is conducting a public proceeding to establish a confidentiality framework for the FPT Act. The Framework Draft No. 1 is now available for public feedback until March 8, 2021. The framework aims to establish an appropriate approach for the BCUC to determine what fuel data submitted by those in the wholesale and retail fuel industry should be considered protected information and kept confidential and what can be published.
The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) is an independent agency of the Government of British Columbia.
