On 10 April 2014, the AEMC published a final rule determination in respect of the Victorian jurisdictional derogation (Smelter Agreements) rule change.

The Commission has determined to make the rule as proposed by the Minister for Energy and Resources (Victoria), with some minor amendments.

The rule clarifies that the arrangements through which the State Electricity Commission of Victoria (SEC) is deemed to be the registered participant for the Point Henry smelter and the Anglesea power station will conclude on 31 July 2014.
