Options to Improve Gas Pipeline Regulation
COAG Consultation Regulation Impact Statement – COAG Energy Council
On 1 November 2019, the COAG Energy Council released a Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS), Options to Improve Gas Pipeline Regulation. The RIS identifies and evaluates options to deliver a more efficient and well-integrated regulatory framework for gas pipelines and to assess how effective Part 23 (Access to non-scheme pipelines) of the National Gas Rules has been in meeting its objectives. Issues focused upon include the different forms and application of regulation to gas pipelines, information disclosure, negotiation frameworks and dispute resolution mechanisms.
The Office of Best Practice Regulation assessed the RIS as adequate in accordance with the Council of Australian Government Best Practice Regulation requirements.
Submissions are invited on the RIS by 20 December 2019.
