The Commission has released its final decision on amendments to its Water Industry Guideline No. 2 including financial reporting requirements to apply to SA Water.

The final decision has been made having regard to the key issues raised by stakeholders in respect of the water regulatory information requirements for major retailers consultation draft, released for public consultation in April 2013.

The final decision sets the financial reporting requirements (incorporating regulatory accounting statement proformas) to apply to SA Water, subject to review when deemed necessary. The final reporting requirements have been added to the existing operational reporting requirements and service standards in Water Industry Guideline No. 2.

The Commission has also taken this opportunity to make minor changes to Part C (operational performance reporting) of the Guideline based on issues identified by SA Water and the Commission outside of a formal consultation process.
