On 16 February 2012, the AEMC gave notice under section 107 of the NEL and section 317 of the NGL to extend the period of time to 17 May 2012 for the making of the draft rule determination on Major Energy Users Inc (MEU) rule change requests relating to optimisation of the RAB and disincentivisation of replacement of depreciated assets. The Commission considered that an extension in the time period is required to ensure that adequate resources are available to consider issues raised in the submissions and to progress the rule change request.
