On 1 May 2014 the AEMC commenced consultation on the Call Notice Timing rule change request.

The rule change request seeks to amend the National Electricity Rules to delay by one hour the time at which a call notice issued by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) is taken to have been issued on the next business day. The rule change request was submitted by AEMO.

The rule change request will proceed on an expedited basis and the timetable for submissions is as follows:

  • the final date for stakeholders to object to proceeding on an expedited basis is 15 May 2014; and
  • the final date for stakeholders to provide written submissions on the content of the request is 29 May 2014.
