Freedom of information
The AEMC is subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1991 (SA).
Categories of documents held by the AEMC
We publish various documents on this website including:
- documents relating to the rule making process
- documents relating to reviews
- all versions of the National Electricity Rules
- all versions of the National Gas Rules
- all versions of the National Energy Retail Rules
These documents can be freely inspected at our offices between the hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Documents that we no longer require access to for current administrative purposes may also be held by State Records (South Australia). A request under the Freedom of Information Act 1991 (SA) is not required to inspect them.
As part of our rule making responsibilities and also in conducting reviews, we seek submissions and written comments from the public. All submissions are published on our website (subject to the AEMC considering any claim of confidentiality). We may also hold public hearings; for instance prior to the publication of the draft determination or before a final determination (if a request is made for a hearing).
