Review of the Limited Merits Review Regime - Consultation Paper One (March 2012)

Publication date: Friday, 02nd March 2012.

A limited merits review regime was introduced in the National Electricity Law (NEL) on 1 January 2008 and the National Gas Law (NGL) on 1 July 2008. The regime provides parties affected by the decisions of the energy regulator, or other relevant decision maker under the NEL or NGL, with recourse to a review mechanism.

On 9 December 2011, the former Standing Council on Energy and Resources agreed to bring forward the review of the limited merits review regime in light of increasing concerns relating to the operation of the regime. On 7 March 2012, an Expert Panel was established by the Council for the purpose of undertaking the Review (Standing Council on Energy and Resources Bulletin No. 1 refers).

The Expert Panel released the first Review of the Limited Merits Review Regime Consultation Paper in March 2012 and invited stakeholders to make submissions in response to it. All stakeholder submissions received in response to this consultation process are available below, excluding where stakeholders clearly indicated that a submissions should remain confidential, either in whole or in part.
