The Security and Reliability Council (SRC) was established under the Electricity Industry Act 2010 to provide advice to the Authority on the performance of the electricity system and the system operator, and reliability of supply issues.

The Innovation and Participation Advisory Group (IPAG) and the Market Development Advisory Group (MDAG) are tasked with providing advice and recommendations to the Authority on the development of the Code and market facilitation measures.

Several other technical and ad-hoc groups also give independent advice and make recommendations to the Authority Board on aspects of the electricity industry.
