Rules of Procedure
The NIRB’s Rules of Procedure apply to all proceedings conducted pursuant to Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Article 12, Part 4: Screening of Project Proposals and Part 5: Review of Project Proposals.
These Rules are not applicable to proceedings conducted pursuant to Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Article 12, Part 6: Review by a Federal Environmental Assessment Panel unless these Rules are specifically adopted as the applicable procedural rules by a federal environmental assessment panel.
The NIRB is currently developing updated Rules of Procedure to reflect the impact assessment process under the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act (NuPPAA). The updated Rules will be subject to thorough public consultation and will be finalized following the coming into force of NuPPAA.
