Overview

On 16 August 2019 we began the process to review the current electricity distribution ring-fencing guideline. The objectives of this review are to update the ring-fencing guideline to clarify some obligations and to make compliance less administratively complex.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this project was delayed. In August 2020 we released an updated timeline for the review. We aim to publish an issues paper in October as our next step in this project.

Invitation for submissions

On 28 August 2019 we released the slides for the workshops in Sydney and Melbourne. Submissions on these slides have closed.

Background

On 17 October 2017 we published the final amended Ring-fencing Guideline (Guideline) and Explanatory Statement.
