Energy Consumers Australia has commented on the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) Compliance Procedures and Guidelines (the Guidelines) – Draft for Consultation of June 2018 and the Notice of draft instrument.
In brief, Energy Consumers Australia supports the re-opening of the Guidelines to incorporate these amendments and the Guidelines being amended to:
- refine the reporting framework for retailers to create consistency with the AER’s compliance objectives;
- improve the quality of reporting; and
- revise the guidance material on compliance audits to reflect the AER’s approach to utilising its NER powers.
