  • The authorities have been formally delegated to the position through the delegation chart.
  • The supervisor has formally identified in writing the individual in that position.
  • The individual has completed the required training, and subsequently revalidated his or her knowledge at least every five years, in accordance with the Policy on Learning, Training, and Development and the Directive on Mandatory Training.
