Carrier Licence Conditions (Networks supplying Superfast Carriage Services to Residential Customers) Declaration 2014
Remaking of Sunsetting Instrument without Significant Amendments – Department of Communications and the Arts
On 19 June 2018 the Minister for Communications remade the Carrier Licence Conditions (Networks supplying Superfast Carriage Services to Residential Customers) Declaration 2014 (the Declaration) without significant amendments. The Declaration was scheduled to sunset on 30 June 2018.
The Declaration, which is made by the Minister under subsection 63(5) of the Telecommunications Act 1997, was first made in 2014 to impose functional separation and wholesale supply obligations on certain new superfast networks with a view to supporting competition. It was remade with minor changes to improve transparency in December 2016.
Consistent with Government best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department of Communications and the Arts, after consultation with industry and the general public has assessed the Declaration as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking the Declaration.
