Compliance and Performance Reporting pre 2012-13

Prior to the 2012-13 reporting year, the Commission published the Compliance and Performance Report. With the establishment of the National Energy Customer Framework in 2012, responsibility for regulation of energy retailers transferred to the Australian Energy Regulator. In light of this change, the Commission reexamined the reporting obligations of licensed utilities and simplified its approach to monitoring compliance. The Commission ceased producing the Compliance and Performance Reporting as it was replaced by the Utility Licence Annual Report from 2012-13.
