The timeframe for making a draft determination on this request and, if needed, a draft rule has been extended until 27 October 2016 under section 107 of the National Electricity Law and section 317 of the National Gas Law.

This extension of time is required as a result of the complexity of issues raised by the rule change request, including the need to develop a detailed design of a retailer default fund to allow the Commission to adequately assess all options.
