On 2 July 2015, the AEMC extended the period of time for publication of the final rule determination on the Competition in Metering and Related Services rule change request. The extension is necessary to consider complex issues raised in stakeholder submissions around the details of implementing a competitive framework for metering. The final determination will be published on 26 November 2015.

While we do not anticipate that the broad policy framework will change significantly, it will take some time to address the issues that have been raised so that the final rule is robust, clear and workable, and delivers outcomes that are in the long term interests of consumers.
