EUAA Submission: AER Powers and Civil Penalty Regime
Emily Wood | July 2, 2018
In summary, the EUAA supports proposed amendments to the national energy laws to give the Australian Energy Regulator the power to compel individuals to appear before it and give evidence. We agree with the conclusions of the 2013 Review of Enforcement regimes under the National Energy Laws that this power would provide the AER’s power to investigate breaches of the national energy laws, allow the AER to obtain unedited evidence, make it easier to get answers to technically complex questions, and allow for the more timely collection of information.
