Overview

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is Australia’s national energy market regulator. Among other functions, the AER is responsible for monitoring, investigating and enforcing compliance with obligations under the National Electricity Law, National Gas Law, National Energy Retail Law and the respective Rules and Regulations (national energy laws).

The policy explains our approach to promoting compliance with obligations under the National Electricity Law, National Gas Law, National Energy Retail Law and the respective Rules and Regulations. It also provides guidance on how we respond to potential breaches and the factors we may have regard to when deciding whether to take enforcement action.
