AER issues paper: review of the rate of return guideline (submissions by 12 December 2017)
“On 31 October 2017, we released our issues paper for our review of the rate of return guideline.
This issues paper requests views on the extent to which our current approach to setting the allowed rate of return remains appropriate. It follows a consultation paper we published in July 2017, which sought views on how we could best run the rate of return guideline (Guideline) review process, and a pre-issues paper public forum we held on 18 September 2017.
We will follow this paper with a separate document to be released in November 2017. This paper will finalise aspects of the process for reviewing the rate of return. It will build on our consultation paper, released on 31 July 2017, and submissions from stakeholders received in response to that consultation paper.”
The AER has invited interested parties to make submissions on the issues paper by close of business 12 December 2017.
