Rule Change: Completed
On 23 April 2015, the AEMC made a rule which removes the requirement in the National Gas Rules for an emergency information page on the Natural Gas Services Bulletin Board.
The rule is likely to result in:
- clearer emergency information and management roles by removing an unnecessary and potentially unreliable information source; and
- reduced administrative costs for the Australian Energy Market Operator.
Consumers may benefit from clearer emergency management arrangements through more effective responses to emergency incidents.
The final rule is the same as the proposed rule, except for some drafting amendments. It will commence on 7 May 2015.
