Rules made

Under the National Electricity Law, the AEMC has the power to make rules amending the National Electricity Rules.

The AEMC is not permitted to propose rules (except for minor or non-material amendments to the rules). Rather, we make decisions on rule changes requested by stakeholders. In making and amending rules we are required to follow a rule change process under which we must consult with the public and publish the reasons for our decisions in rule determinations.

You can view each amending rule and its related rule determination in the table below. For each amending rule, the table also indicates the proponent, the date it was made, when it commenced or will commence operation and, if it has commenced, the version of the National Electricity Rules  in which it was consolidated.
