Gas and Electricity Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2006

Bill No. 030
Long Title This Bill seeks to amend the Energy Coordination Act 1994, the Gas Standards Act 1972 and the Electricity Act 1945 to improve the technical and safety regulation provisions in the energy industry legislation. Amendments are required to the legislation to ensure there is an effective technical and safety regulatory framework for the now fully privatised and competitive gas supply industry, as well as the increasingly competitive electricity supply industry. This is necessary for the protection of the community.
