Register as a participant in the gas retail markets
This page provides an overview of the processes, tasks and forms required to register as a participant in the gas retail markets in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria.
These are the documents needed for registration.
Fees and charges
Participants must pay a fee to register; these are outlined in the latest Gas markets fee schedule.
These documents need to be supplied either with your application form, or beforehand, as they support your application for registration in the gas retail markets.
Gas retail market participants who are also participants in the Declared Wholesale Gas Market (DWGM) or Short Term Trading Market (STTM) may need to provide credit support to AEMO. All financial guarantees must be in the prescribed format. AEMO recommends you get guarantees checked by AEMO before execution, by emailing a draft copy to email@example.com.
The Credit support management guide contains information on AEMO’s credit support processes and participant obligations.
Recipient-created tax invoices (RCTI)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AEMO has adopted digital and remote ways of working to protect our people and critical operations. During this time, applicants can sign and exchange electronically.
