Part 4 review of electricity information disclosure requirements

Under Part 4 of the Commerce Act 1986 the Commission is required to determine information disclosure requirements for suppliers of electricity lines services. This includes the 29 electricity distribution businesses (EDBs) and Transpower, the state-owned enterprise that operates New Zealand’s high-voltage transmission network.

The Commission has published information disclosure requirements under Part 4 of the Commerce Act for EDBs. These requirements supersede the Commission’s Electricity Distribution (Information Disclosure) Requirements 2008.

EDBs made their first annual disclosures under the new requirements in 2013.

Section 53A of the Act provides that the purpose of information disclosure is to ensure that sufficient information is readily available to interested persons to assess whether the purpose of Part 4 of the Act is being met.

For information on the information disclosure requirements that apply to Transpower, please see Transpower information dislcosure.
