These Rule changes are being initiated by the AEMC to correct minor errors and make non-material changes to the National Electricity Rules and the National Gas Rules (the Rules) to improve their quality.

As with previous AEMC initiated rules, these minor corrections and non-material changes will make the Rules clearer to stakeholders.

This Rule proposal seeks to:

  • correct several minor errors, including formatting, typographical and cross referencing anomalies in the Rules;
  • correct inconsistencies in the treatment of Chapter 10 glossary terms in the body of the National Electricity Rules (NER);
  • insert notes relating to civil penalty and conduct provisions in the National Gas Rules (NGR); and
  • remove expired provisions from the Rules.

Any written objections to the expedited process must be received by 2 May 2013.

The Commission invites parties to provide submissions on the proposal by 16 May 2013.
