The NBN Services in Operation Record Keeping Rules (NBN SIO RKR) were issued in September 2014. The Rules require NBN Co to provide information to the ACCC on the number of Access Virtual Circuit (AVC) services in operation, the amount of Connectivity Virtual Circuit (CVC) capacity being acquired and average CVC utilisation over the NBN.
In July 2015 the ACCC consulted on a proposed NBN Wholesale Market Indicators Report based on the information provided under the NBN SIO RKR. Following consultation, the ACCC issued a disclosure direction to NBN Co in March 2016 to prepare and provide to the ACCC for publication a report on data collected by NBN Co under the NBN SIO RKR. The report is required to be produced each calendar quarter. The initial report was released on 29 April 2016.
The NBN SIO RKR is due to expire on 30 September 2017. The ACCC expects to consult on whether to vary or extend the RKR and the Disclosure Direction prior to the RKR expiry.
