A guide to the water charge infrastructure rules: tier 2 requirements

This guide was developed to help infrastructure operators develop and implement processes and practices necessary to comply with the Tier 2 requirements of the Water Charge (Infrastructure) Rules 2010 (WCIR) – that is, the requirement for certain infrastructure operators to develop five yearly Network Service Plans.

On 15 November 2016, the Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources’ gave notice of his intention to remove Tier 2 requirements (that is, Part 5) from the WCIR, and made amendments to the WCIR on 31 January 2017. The removal of these Tier 2 requirements came into force on 1 July 2017. Since the Minister’s decision took effect, this guide is no longer relevant.
