Renewed effort to improve compliance outcomes

  • Compliance

Our compliance team is renewing its effort to improve compliance outcomes.

The compliance team intends to widen the scope of cases that could be formally investigated and whether those cases should result in a recommendation to the Board to lay a formal complaint with the Rulings Panel.

Historically, the Electricity Authority has referred only the most serious cases of alleged breaches of the Code to the Rulings Panel. Our compliance team will now consider where compliance outcomes could be improved as per our compliance strategy.

This change could see a wider range of cases referred to the Rulings Panel.

View all investigations and rulings.
