The NSW Government is seeking feedback on the Water Industry Competition (General) Amendment (Licensing Exemptions) Regulation 2010 which has recently been released. It is proposed that this will replace the current exemption regime under the Water Industry Competition Act 2006 (WIC Act).
The Government introduced the WIC Act to harness the innocation and investment potential of the private sector in the water and wastewater industries as par of its strategy for a sustainable water future. As the same time the WIC Act establishes a licensing regime for private sector entrants to ensure the continued protection of public health, consumers and the environment.
In March 2009, the NSW Office of Water commenced a review of clause 19(d) of the Water Industry Competition (General) Regulation 2008 after it was identifed that the clause has led to inconsistent regulation of activities on a single landholding.
If you wish to comment please visit the NSW Office of Water's website where a copy of the Water Industry Competition (General) Amendment (Licensing Exemptions) Regulation 2010 is available, as well as other details of the review, including how to make a submission.
Closing date is 5pm Monday, 28 June 2010.
