On 27 February 2014, the AEMC commenced consultation on the Victorian Jurisdictional Derogation (Smelter Agreements) rule change request.

The proposal, submitted by the Minister for Energy and Resources (Victoria), seeks to correct a perceived error or oversight in the wording of an existing Victorian jurisdictional derogation.

The AEMC will assess this request under an expedited rule change process, subject to no valid written objections being received by 13 March 2014.
