Reciprocal Procedures

As part of the Statement of Cooperation on Protection of Transboundary Waters (SOC), reciprocal procedures were developed in order to facilitate the invitation and ongoing involvement of B.C. and Alaska representatives and designated scientists in the following processes:

  • Environmental Assessments
  • Permitting Processes
  • Where appropriate and in furtherance of the objectives of the SOC, analogous processes triggered under federal law where British Columbia or Alaska is engaged in that federal process.

Full documentation of reciprocal procedures can be found in SOC Attachment 2: Reciprocal Procedures (PDF, 141KB).
