On 31 July 2014, the AEMC extended the period of time for the publication of the draft rule determination on the bidding in good faith rule change request.

The Commission considers that the extension is necessary due to the complexity of issues raised by the rule change request, as reflected in the extensive stakeholder submissions on the consultation paper and views expressed at the stakeholder forum held on 5 May 2014.

The period of time for publication of the draft determination has therefore been extended to 16 April 2015. This will provide sufficient time to assess the extent and materiality of the issues raised and to accommodate additional stakeholder consultation towards the end of 2014.

A summary of stakeholder submissions on the consultation paper has been prepared by AEMC staff.
