Ring-Fencing Compliance

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has developed the Electricity Distribution Ring-Fencing Guideline to separate regulated and competitive business activities to promote efficient costs for regulated services and support the development of new and existing competitive markets.  

In July 2017 AusNet Services provided a Compliance Plan to the AER outlining the activities undertaken. This plan describes the specific steps AusNet Services has implemented.

Please visit the AER website for an overview and key documents on the Ring-Fencing Guideline

The AER's Electricity Distribution Ring-fencing Guideline requires AusNet Services to maintain and publish the following registers on our website:

First name This register identifies waivers that have been granted to AusNet Services by the AER under clause 5 of the Guideline.
First nameThis document outlines the protocol for what information will be shared, the terms on which it will be shared and how to request information. The document also contains the register identifying the legal entities that have requested information and a description of any information shared.
First nameThis register identifies the staff that are involved in the provision or marketing of both direct control services and contestable electricity services under clause 4.2.2.(b) of the Guideline, and offices where AusNet Services provide direct control services and contestable electricity services.
