2022 compliance plan assessment

By no later than 31 March each Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) year, each obliged retailer (retailer) must submit to the Commission in writing a compliance plan in accordance with clause 4.1 of the REPS Code

The Commission provides guidance and feedback to ensure the compliance plan submitted by each retailer demonstrates that the retailer has established a robust compliance regime and the compliance plan is a fit for purpose document. The compliance plan must demonstrate the retailer has procedures, processes, and controls in place to ensure compliance with the scheme requirements.

Following a preliminary review by the Commission, retailers were given the opportunity to provide missing or incomplete information and to submit an updated compliance plan. The Commission’s final assessment confirmed that all compliance plans for the 2022 REPS year met the record keeping, reporting and assurance requirements detailed in clause 4.1 of the REPS Code.
