Default price-quality path compliance

Gas pipeline businesses are required to submit an annual compliance statement that assesses their compliance with the default price-quality path.

Gas distribution businesses (GDBs) and gas transmission businesses (GTBs) are required to submit annual compliance statements. In their compliance statements, GDBs and GTBs are required to assess their own compliance against the relevant default price-quality path determination.

The compliance statements submitted for the 2014 assessment period were produced under the Gas Distribution Services Default Price-quality Path Determination 2013 and Gas Transmission Services Default Price-quality Path Determination 2013.
