The reasons for the decision and the relationship to achieving the National Electricity Objectives are set out in the attached rule determination.

The National Electricity Amendment (Removal of Intervention Hierarchy) Rule 2020 has been assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation as compliant with requirements for a Council of Australian Government’s Decision RIS.
