On 31 October 2013, the AEMC made a final determination on the access to NMI Standing Data rule change request.

The rule clarifies that retailers and their service providers’ may access NMI Standing Data. The rule promotes the efficient delivery of electricity retail services and facilitates retail competition. Consumers will benefit from this rule change as it allows retailers to provide them with accurate quotes and information. Consumers will then be better able to choose electricity offers that are best suited to them.
