2016 Access Undertaking (2016 HVAU)

Those parts of the Hunter Valley Coal Network managed and operated by us are covered by our Hunter Valley Coal Network Access Undertaking (HVAU). This was approved by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to commence on 1 July 2011, with a term of 5 years.

The initial term of the HVAU expired on 30 June 2016 but the ACCC has approved two separate 6 month extension applications (on June 23 and November 23, 2016) such that the 2011 HVAU is now due to expire on 30 June 2017.

Details in respect of the extension to 30 June 2017 can be accessed here.

The updated submission and all supporting documents can be accessed here.

The ACCC released a consultation paper to stakeholders on 15 December, 2016 and received submissions from a broad range of stakeholders, including supplementary submissions addressing issues raised in the initial submissions.
