The AER collects information from regulated businesses in order to undertake its functions. The AER uses Regulatory Information Notices (RIN) to collect information, at the time it is making a regulatory determination about that business and annually throughout the regulatory period. The AER publishes non-confidential information received from regulated businesses in order to support effective and transparent regulatory process and ensure that stakeholders can access information on issues affecting their interests.
Annual Reporting RIN information is collected from Multinet Gas pipeline to allow the AER to monitor regulated pipeline business outcomes against the access arrangement determinations, develop performance reports and prepare for future determinations. It should be used with caution if trying to compare outcomes of different businesses as, unlike benchmarking information, it generally reflects the business specific definitions and arrangements that applied at the time of each businesses access arrangement determination, which may not be directly comparable between businesses. The AER will issue performance reports separately.
Information is also collected from businesses at the time of their access arrangement determinations and is available via the Determinations and Access arrangements web page.
Information provided by regulated businesses may be updated at any time. Please use the AER website subscription service and select 'Performance Reports' to ensure you are notified of any updates.
