The AEMC advises that the publication of the 2012 pricing report, originally scheduled to be released in December 2012, will now be released in early 2013.

Preparation of the report requires analysis of significant volumes of data and information. Issues have arisen following initial analysis of network pricing methodologies; and some jurisdictions have recently changed the methodologies used to determine wholesale cost allowances. These issues require more detailed consideration to maintain the informative value of the report.
