All applications for a Part 6A dispensation are assessed on an individual case by case basis by our Compliance Committee/Board. The Electricity Authority may grant a Part 6A dispensation on any terms or conditions that it reasonably considers necessary.
Part 6A of the Code contains provisions that relate to the separation of distribution from certain generation and retailing. An industry participant can apply for an exemption, and a specified person can apply for a dispensation, from Part 6A of the Code.
The Electricity Authority may grant a Part 6A dispensation in respect of Part 6A or any provisions of that Part if we are satisfied that:
- it is not necessary, for the purpose of achieving the Electricity Authority’s objectives under section 15 of the Act, for the specified person to comply with Part 6A or the specific provisions of that Part; or
- granting a Part 6A dispensation in respect of the specified person would better achieve the Authority’s objectives than requiring compliance.
