2019 Review of the water third party access regime
- Project Released: 2 Nov 2018
- Project Closes: Jun 2019
- Contact: Angus Bruce
On 1 July 2016, a regime was established that provides a framework for third parties to negotiate access to specified water and sewerage infrastructure services provided by SA Water, with the potential for arbitration should negotiations fail. The Commission is the regulator of that access regime.
The Commission is required to review the effectiveness of the access regime in addressing the potential for information asymmetries and misuse of market power by SA Water in dealing with prospective third party access seekers.
The Commission is then required to make a recommendation to the Minister for Environment and Water as to whether or not the regime should continue from 1 July 2019 for a further five years.
