Compliance and Enforcement

On 1 July 2016 the compliance and enforcement function that had previously been carried out by the Independent Market Operator (IMO) was transferred to the ERA. Any compliance and enforcement activity carried out by the IMO prior to the transfer is deemed to have been carried out by the ERA.

The ERA monitors Rule Participants' compliance with the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules (Market Rules), investigates potential breaches of the Market Rules and takes enforcement action where appropriate. Enforcement action can include applying to the Electricity Review Board for fines or other orders.

The Market Rules require AEMO to demonstrate to the ERA that they are maintaining compliance with the Market Rules and Market Procedures.

The Monitoring Protocol outlines how the ERA monitors Rule Participants' compliance.


For any enquiries related to the ERA's compliance and enforcement functions under the Market Rules, including reporting any alleged non-compliance, please contact:
