Mr. C. Peter Watson
Chief Executive Officer
National Energy Board
517 Tenth Avenue South West, Suite 210
Calgary, Alberta  T2R OAS

Dear Mr. Watson:

Thank you for your letter of June 23, 2017, about the National Energy Board's Technical Workshop on Quality Assurance for Pipeline Fittings.

As you know, it is important that Canadians have the confidence that pipelines can be built and operated in a manner that is safe for the environment and the public. The pipeline industry, manufacturers and distributors can play a key role in building this confidence by ensuring that pipeline components in the supply chain are of the highest standards and specification.

The National Energy Board's leadership to engage with industry players about the issue of quality assurance of pipeline components will ensure that Canada maintains the highest standards for federally regulated pipelines and that they remain safe for service.

Again, thank you for writing.

Yours sincerely.

The Honourable Jim Carr, P.C., M.P.
