Under the conditions of the Board’s approval and 5-year oversight (Decision 16, served on December 24, 2008), CN is required to file a detailed Monthly Operational Report to allow the Board to closely monitor CN operations; and a Quarterly Environmental Report so that the Board will be kept apprised of the implementation and effectiveness of the mitigation. In a subsequent decision (Decision 26,  served on December 21, 2010), the board after reviewing the findings of an independent audit of reports filed by CN in connection with its acquisition of EJ&E extended the 5-year monitoring and oversight period for this acquisition 1 additional year to January 2015.

CN will continue to submit Monthly Operational Reports and Quarterly Environmental Report until the end of the oversight and monitoring period.
