On 9 March 2017, the Commission gave notice under section 95 and 96(1)(a) of the National Electricity Law of its intention to initiate the proposed National Electricity Amendment (Minor Changes) Rule 2017 under the expedited rule making process.  This rule is being initiated by the AEMC to correct minor errors and make non-material changes to the National Electricity Rules to improve their quality.  As with previous AEMC initiated rules, these minor corrections and non-material changes will make the rules clearer to stakeholders.

Any written objections to the expedited process must be received by 23 March 2017. The Commission invites parties to provide submissions on the proposal by 6 April 2017.
