The IEC is a statutory body established under the National Electricity Rules responsible for developing and making recommendations on changing B2B Procedures. The role and responsibilities of the IEC are defined by the Rules, the IEC Operating Manual, and the IEC Election Procedures.

In completing its statutory role in relation to managing the ongoing development of B2B Procedures and any changes to them, the IEC:

  1. Makes recommendations on B2B Procedure changes and oversees the consultation process.
  2. In conjunction with AEMO, considers implications of potential policy changes which may affect B2B Procedures.
  3. Identifies B2B Procedure continuous improvement opportunities.
  4. In conjunction with AEMO, monitors and contributes to B2B Procedure delivery management and prioritisation.

The IEC has established and works closely with the B2B Working Group to undertake a range of investigations with industry input on its behalf. The IEC provides specific directions to the B2B Working Group in relation to the scope of activities and timelines that it requires for each matter it refers to the working group. Information on the B2B Working Group can be found here.

The process for making changes to B2B Procedures is outlined in the B2B Change Process:

Deferred Power of Choice transactions

Date of notice: 14 August 2019

During the implementation of Power of Choice (PoC) project, 51 potential transactions that were not considered at the time to be a high-priority were deferred for later review. The Information Exchange Committee, in conjunction with its Business-to-Business Working Group, has now finalised its review of these deferred potential transactions.

Of the 51 items reviewed:

  • Nineteen items are adequately addressed by existing transactions and require no
    additional actions and have been closed.
  • Seven potential transactions do not have sufficient volumes to merit progressing at
    this time. These will be monitored by the B2B-WG on an annual basis, commencing
    in late 2020.
  • Two potential transactions are dependant on changes to standing data and will be
    included on a B2B change register to be considered when AEMO reviews its standing
  • Three of the potential changes relate to MSATS rather than B2B. These transactions
    will be addressed by the Australian Energy Market Commissions’s proposed changes
    to embedded networks or have been referred to AEMO for consideration.
  • Ten of the proposed transactions were not within the remit of B2B Procedures or the
    B2B Guide, but rather should be the subject of bilateral commercial agreements
    between specific participants, or jurisdictions. These potential transactions have been
