Conference Organizing Committee Name Company Peter Reid Stantec, CPANS Michael Vaters ENMAX Corporation, WCAR Piotr Staniaszek Millennium EMS Solutions Ltd., CPANS Sunny Cho Alberta Environment, CPANS Allison Fisher Stantec, CPANS Bob Becker CPANS            About the Western Canadian Auditing Roundtable (WCAR) and Waste Facility Environmental Review (WFER) Process The WCAR is a non-profit organization of industry members dedicated to the advancement of health, safety, and environmental auditing. Our goal is to facilitate the exchange of information and influence the development of Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) Management Systems and the practice of EH&S auditing processes in Western Canada. With this goal in mind, CPANS and WCAR have come together to offer our members and the scientific community this exciting opportunity. If your company is interested in becoming a member of WCAR, please contact Michael Vaters @ mvaters@enmax.com. What is the WFER? The Waste Facility Environmental Review Process (WFER) is a method of collecting information on waste facilities and transporters that may be used by each waste generator as the basis for their risk assessment and eventual use of a waste facility or transporter. While waste companies may take title to our wastes and indemnify us, both the legislation and civil precedents still leave the generator subject to the risk of expensive remediation. A generator ‘owns’ wastes from cradle to grave. Performing risk assessments on the waste facilities that we use forms part of our due diligence. Establishing due diligence not only aids in defending against litigation, but if done well, helps companies avoid getting into a situation where litigation is considered. The development of the Waste Facility Environmental Review Process has been sponsored by the Western Canadian Auditing Roundtable (WCAR).
