2020 Q2 Newsletter - Haven’t Logged in to EOS? January 2021 Will Be Here Faster Than You Think!

Transport Canada has given a deadline of January 31, 2021 to log in to their web-based system called ERAP Online Services (EOS) and resubmit your ERAP regardless of when your ERAP expires.

If your ERAP expires this year, ERAC will contact you around 90 days prior to the expiration date to begin the renewal process.

If you do not have an ERAP expiring this year, we recommend completing the below process as soon as possible.

For ERAC to continue to assist in managing and updating your ERAP, you must add ERAC as a delegated ERAP writer in EOS. You may complete this process at any time.

  1. Log in to EOS.
  2. Once you are logged in, on the Your Companies page underneath the company heading you will see four options.  Please choose Create or View Existing ERAPs
  3. You will be taken to the ERAP Dashboard.  Here, you will see all ERAPs associated with your company. 
  4. Under the Actions column, select Update. You will be prompted to provide a reason for the update e.g., adding ERAP writer. This update will not affect your ERAP. You must complete the sections called Company Operations and ERAP Contacts before ERAC can proceed with renewing your ERAP.
  5. Add ERAC as a Delegated ERAP Writer by selecting Delegated ERAP Writers and completing the following:
  • Please click Yes for “Is a third party assisting you in preparing your ERAP application?”. 
  • Add the following account as a Delegated ERAP Writer:
    • First Name: ERAP
    • Last Name: Writer
    • Email: erapwriter@erac.org 
    • Is this Delegated ERAP Writer allowed to invite other ERAP Writers without your approval? Yes
    • Until what date can this Delegated ERAP Writer edit the ERAP application? Leave empty
    • Acknowledgement: Check the box

The system will send an email to ERAC to access the account. The designated ERAP writer will only have access to that specific ERAP, not the whole company account. If you have more than one ERAP, you must follow steps 2 and 3 for each ERAP.

Updated ERAC Dangerous Goods Preparedness and Response Participation Agreement

As part of these changes from Transport Canada, ERAC also updated our Dangerous Goods Preparedness and Response Participation Agreement to ensure we meet all federal regulations on your behalf. 

This new agreement must be signed by your organization upon re-submission of your ERAP. Once ERAC is added as a delegated ERAP writer, we will send a copy of the new agreement for your review and signature. This agreement must be uploaded to EOS before resubmitting the ERAP to Transport Canada.

If you have any questions about your ERAP, adding ERAC as a delegated ERAP writer, or the updated agreement, please contact administrative assistants Joanna Bossert at 403-543-6504 or Debbie Norris at 403-543-6098.
