What is the Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB)?

The Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB) is a communication system that allows parties to view pipeline information through personal computers and phone lines. An online connection allows information to be viewed on a screen to the user, and allows the user to react by entering data, requesting new data, and/or requesting files to be transferred. Order 636 mandated that pipelines institute user-friendly EBBs to provide shippers with timely information about available capacity.
