The AER is responsible for energy market regulation; this includes ensuring compliance with the National Energy Laws and the respective Rules and Regulations. In some instances, National Electricity Market and wholesale gas market participants have been submitting voluntary self-reports on non-compliance. These self-reports have been submitted on an ad-hoc basis, and often via multiple channels within the AER.

This guidance note outlines a more standardised self-reporting process to help wholesale energy market participants effectively identify and self-report any potential breaches. As part of this process participants should submit information and data relating to their compliance issue to the AER using the Wholesale energy self-reporting template.
