The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission today issued A Guide to the Water Charge (Planning and Management Information) Rules 2010.
The Water Charge (Planning and Management Information) Rules 2010 commenced on 24 July 2010. These rules were based on advice provided by the ACCC, to the Minister for Climate Change, Energy Efficiency and Water, in July 2009.
The rules aim to improve the transparency of water planning and management charges and require government agencies to consistently publish detailed information on water planning and management charges.
The ACCC will be responsible for enforcing compliance and monitoring of these rules. The guide will assist Basin state government departments and agencies in complying with the requirements under the rules.
The guide is available from the ACCC’s website, http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/862695 , or through the ACCC Infocentre on 1300 302 502.
