Version 3 of the Electricity Distribution Network Code came into force from 31 August 2018. Version 3 changed the due date for the distributors' annual planning reports (clause 2.2) from 30 September to 31 December each year. The change meant that the distributors' timeframes for submitting their regulatory proposals to the Australian Energy Regulator for 2020-25 aligned with the annual planning report timeframe.
Version 4 of the code reflects changes recommended by the QCA in the final report of the review of the GSL scheme. The final report was published in March 2019 and is available on the Review of GSLs page of the website. Version 4 will come into effect on and from 1 July 2020.
