One of the Commission’s statutory functions is to administer the licensing of energy distribution and retailing activities under the Gas Industry Act 2001 and the Electricity Industry Act 2000. As a condition of their licences, the Commission may require licensed energy retailers and distributors to undertake audits of their compliance with applicable legislative and regulatory obligations, and of the quality of regulatory data such as performance indicators that the licensees report.
Licensees are expected to select auditors from the Commission’s audit panel. In order to be appointed to the Commission’s audit panel, firms will need to satisfy specified criteria, as attached. Current audit panel members are detailed in the table below.
