We have decided to amend the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010 (Code) to enhance the disclosure of wholesale market information (WMI) by:

  • replacing the ‘commercial disadvantage’ exclusion from disclosing information to the public in clause 13.2A(2) of the Code with a ‘reasonable person’ exclusion
  • revising the timeframe for addressing misleading, deceptive, or incorrect information under Part 13 of the Code.

The guidelines have also been updated to help participants meet their WMI disclosure obligations.

The amended Code provisions are in force from 21 June 2018.
