Rule Change: Completed
On 16 July 2020, the AEMC published the self-initiated Minor changes 3 2020 rule change proposal.
The rule change proposal was initiated by the AEMC to correct minor errors and make non-material changes to the National Electricity Rules (NER) to improve their quality. As with previous AEMC initiated rules, these minor corrections and non-material changes make the NER clearer to stakeholders.
In particular, the draft rule seeks to correct minor errors in the NER as a result of the commencement of the National Electricity Amendment (Integrated System Planning) Rule 2020, which was recommended by the Energy Security Board in accordance with the process under section 90F of the National Electricity Law.
Submissions to the rule change proposal closed on 13 August 2020.
The Commission undertook an expedited process for this rule change request as it is considered non-controversial. Under an expedited rule making process, a final rule determination must be made within eight weeks of the initiation of the process under the uniform energy rules.
The AEMC did not receive any objections to it assessing the rules under the expedited rule making process.
The AEMC has made a final rule determination to make the Minor changes 3 2020.
On 16 July 2020, the AEMC gave notice under sections 95 and 96(1)(a) of the National Electricity Law to initiate the proposed National Electricity Amendment (Minor changes 3) Rule 2020 under the expedited Rule making process.
