The Commission is publishing for comment proposed BC Policy 13-602 Confidentiality of Records (Proposed Policy)

Summary of Proposed Policy

The Proposed Policy provides guidance to market participants about the confidentiality of records filed with the Commission. It indicates what the Commission considers when making a decision to hold a record confidential and how to make an application for a record to be held confidential. It also explains that, despite deciding to hold a record confidential, the Commission may release a record if it receives a request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The Proposed Policy will replace section 21.9 of BC Policy 45-601 Statutory and discretionary exemptions.
