Energy Security Board – National Energy Guarantee: Consultation Regulation Impact Statement

Publication date: Friday, 29th June 2018.

The Energy Security Board has released the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) for the National Energy Guarantee (the Guarantee) and is seeking feedback from stakeholders.

COAG RIS Process

COAG's RIS process involves a Consultation RIS and a Decision RIS. The Consultation RIS canvasses regulatory options and their costs and benefits, and seeks stakeholder feedback. The Decision RIS recommends a preferred approach, taking into account stakeholder feedback, and assists Ministers with their decision. Each RIS is assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (Commonwealth) for compliance with the COAG RIS guidelines.

RIS Public Consultation

The Energy Security Board invites submissions on the Guarantee’s Consultation RIS. Submissions close Friday 20 July 2018 and late submissions will not be accepted.
