The conference is a further opportunity for interested parties to present their views on what thresholds the Commission should use to determine whether individual electricity lines businesses be investigated and, if necessary, controlled.

Whereas previous conferences (July and November 2002) focussed on possible forms of thresholds and asset valuation issues, the upcoming conference will focus on the Commission’s proposed thresholds and their implementation in practice.

The Commission has received 54 submissions. All submissions are published on the Commission’s website,, select Electricity Lines Businesses.
