We regulate access to support competition by enabling third parties to access essential infrastructure that cannot be economically duplicated, including below-rail (track) infrastructure.
Water is an essential resource which requires careful management and regulation.
We are the economic regulator of water and wastewater services for Queensland.
Along with our more public role, in setting regulated electricity prices, we set the solar feed-in tariff for regional customers and enforce the Electricity Distribution Network Code.
To help Queensland aquaculture realise its potential, the Queensland Government has asked us to investigate regulations that affect the industry.
Queensland has the potential to develop a diverse, vibrant aquaculture industry. However, new entrants are rare, and new expansions happen at a sluggish pace.
We are investigating the role that regulation is playing in the lack of development in the industry. We will recommend how regulation can allow aquaculture in Queensland to expand better – while protecting the environment at the same time.
