Overview

The ACCC has now concluded its consultation on the Draft Guidelines on Part XICA – Prohibited conduct in the energy market. The public submissions we received are available above.

Part XICA was introduced into the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) following the passing of the Treasury Laws Amendment (Prohibiting Energy Market Misconduct) Act 2019. It includes new prohibitions on particular conduct in energy markets.

The ACCC released its final Guidelines on 11 May 2020. The Draft Guidelines were released, for consultation, on 10 March 2020.
