Consumer Data Right - Energy rules framework consultation

Closed 28 Aug 2020

Opened 8 Jul 2020


The Competition and Consumer (Consumer Data Right) Rules 2020 (rules) will need to be adapted to accommodate the energy sector.

We seek stakeholder views on the preliminary positions we have taken in this rules framework, to inform our development of rules for applying the Consumer Data Right to energy. Stakeholders should respond to this consultation using the current Consumer Data Right rules as a starting point.

Draft amendments to the Consumer Data Right rules for the energy sector will be developed following consultation on this rules framework. The ACCC expects to consult on draft rules in the second half of 2020.

We invite written submissions on the energy rules framework by 5 pm Friday 28 August 2020. Please upload your submission using the link below.
