On 18 February 2016, the AEMC gave notice that it is extending the period of time for the making of a draft rule determination and, if needed, a draft rule, under s. 107 of the National Electricity Law and s.308 of the National Gas Law until 28 July 2016. This extension of time is required as a result of the sufficiently complex issues raised by the rule change requests including the need to develop various options to address the risks related to retailer default. 
The AEMC had previously extended the time for making a draft rule determination relating to these rule change requests to 18 February 2016.
