Scheme Register

The National Gas Law (NGL) and the National Gas Rules (NGR) came into effect on 1 July 2008 in all jurisdictions except Western Australia. On 1 January 2010, Western Australia became a participating jurisdiction under the National Gas Law (to the extent set out in the National Gas Access (WA) Act 2009). The NGR requires that the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) establish and maintain a register of all pipelines that are, or have been, subject to any form of regulation or exemption from regulation under the NGL or the National Third Party Access Code for Natural Gas Pipelines (the 'old scheme').

The Regulator for all pipelines except WA pipelines, is the Australian Energy Regulator. The Regulator for the WA pipelines is the Economic Regulation Authority.
