Review of the Limited Merits Review Regime - Stage Two Report (September 2012)

Publication date: Sunday, 30th September 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.

All stakeholder submissions received in response to this report and further supplementary submissions received in relation to this review are available below, excluding where stakeholders clearly indicated that a submissions should remain confidential, either in whole or in part.
