The Commission is seeking submissions from stakeholders and the community on the need for a Water Metering Code to regulate meter service provision in the water industry in South Australia. A code, if required, would place a mandatory requirement on all retailers to comply with its requirements when operating as a licensed retailer in this state.

The Commission has made its final decision regarding the proposed introduction of a Water Metering Code.

Taking into account mandatory water metering standards and the customer protections contained in the Commission’s Water Retail Codes, at this time the Commission has decided not to introduce a Water Metering Code.

The Commission considers that water metering has to date, been adequately regulated in terms of meeting retailer and customer requirements by the existing technical and consumer protection framework.
