PS3260 Liability for Contaminated Sites Seminar. For all public sector reporting entities in BC and across Canada, there are new requirements from the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) for contaminated sites that need to be in place for financial reporting for any year-end after April 1, 2014. We are offering a course to help you understand the basics behind the new PS3260 standard, determine whether or not sites in your area fall under the definition and scope of the contaminated site accounting standard, and how public sector entities need to adjust their reporting.

This seminar is designed for those who wish to gain a better understanding of the public sector organization's responsibility and reporting for possible contaminated site liabilities.
Participants will learn the overall requirements of the new standard, establish whether or not a liability may exist for their organization, the needs of the public sector from the environmental engineering community and some practical solutions from projects being contemplated across the public sector in BC.
There will be opportunity for group discussion and sharing of experiences across the following areas:
  • Proposed reporting rules regarding contaminated sites
  • Scope of the new reporting standard
  • Establishing an inventory of possible contaminated sites
  • How to establish if a liability exists
  • How to place a value on the liability
  • How PSAB fits into the big picture

The course content, and power point presentation and guidance documents, will be provided.
