Annual Compliance Order 2008

Date initiated: 
18 August 2008
Effective date: 
7 November 2008


The NGL imposes general duties and specific requirements on providers of covered transmission and distribution pipeline services. These obligations require that the service provider be a separate legal entity, must comply with certain obligations in relation to the provision of third party access and more broadly structural and operational separation of marketing staff among other matters.

The annual compliance process is a mechanism to report compliance with these duties and specific requirements. This arrangement replaces the former ring fencing reporting process undertaken by the ACCC for transmission services providers and by various state and territory regulators for distribution service providers.
