Description of Conduct

The Australian Energy Market Operator Limited (AEMO) sought re-authorisation for Chapter 5 (Allocation, Reconciliation and Swing) and Chapter 6 (Compliance and Interpretation) of the Retail Market Procedures and the associated deeds. The Retail Market Procedures are the rules under which the gas retail market systems are operated in Western Australia, and the arrangements under them have been authorised since 2004. AEMO sought re-authorisation for a period of 10 years on substantially the same terms and in respect of substantially the same conduct as is currently authorised.

On 29 August 2019, the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to grant re-authorisation and also granted interim authorisation.

On 10 October 2019, the ACCC issued a final determination granting re-authorisation to AEMO for 10 years. A copy of the final determination is available below.
