This framework has been created to establish the requirements set out by Owners of Underground Infrastructure for a Non-Locate Alliance Consortium (Non-LAC) locator to be able to perform the function of a Dedicated Locator (DL). It was developed to address industry feedback that project owners are not able to use the DL model unless they are part of LAC.
This document has been compiled to fill the need for additional locating resources for DL Projects and is intended to support the industry. This framework is not a requirement imposed by Ontario One Call. Although the recommendations are not required today, this may change in the future and any Dedicated Locate Service Provider (DLSP) who is considering their options, should plan to have these built into their structure at the start or as soon as practicably possible.
