The four gas distribution businesses subject to price-quality regulation under Part 4 of the Commerce Act 1986 are First Gas, GasNet, Powerco and Vector. First Gas also has a gas transmission business that provides gas to large users of natural gas such as big industrial plants, electricity generators and the gas distribution businesses.

We have completed our consultation on our draft decision, our reasons for those decisions and our proposed amendments to implement the proposed changes. We thank all submitters for their contribution to this process. The Commission is considering those views as we finalise our reset of the DPP.

The DPP must be reset by 31 May 2022 and will take effect from 1 October 2022.
