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 HVAU is due to expire on 30 June 2016.

A consultation paper has been developed and provided to stakeholders to obtain feedback about the operation of the HVAU since 1 July 2011.

This will process will help inform our development of a replacement access undertaking, which at this stage is expected to commence in July 2016 (2016 HVAU).
