Overview

On 6 July 2022, the AER released an interim final Ring-fencing guideline (electricity transmission) (version 3) and explanatory statement to address an enforceability issue with the previous guideline (version 2).

On 27 April 2022, TasNetworks wrote to the AER requesting that its transmission ring-fencing waiver issued in 2014 be reissued in substantially the same form as the waiver issued in 2014. TasNetworks sought a waiver from clause 7.1(a)(ii) of the Guideline. 

On 6 July 2022 the AER published its final decision to re-issue a waiver to TasNetworks for clause 7.1(a)(ii) of the Guideline.
