Standing Council on Energy and Resources Bulletin No. 6 - Limited Merits Review Regime
Publication date: Thursday, 06th June 2013.
The former Standing Council on Energy and Resources (SCER) agreed to important policy changes in relation to reform of the limited merits review regime. These reforms will ensure that the limited merits review will deliver the outcomes specified in the statement of policy intent, published by SCER on 19 December 2012. Specifically, the changes clarify that consideration of the long term interests of consumers is a requirement of both the initial economic regulatory process and any subsequent reviews.
Released on 6 June 2013, Standing Council on Energy and Resources Bulletin No. 6 provided details on this policy and its reasons for adopting this approach in a decision regulation impact statement (RIS).
