Rules, codes, and requirements

We issue rules and codes that energy companies must follow. The rules and codes define their responsibilities and obligations to consumers, other energy companies and energy-related agencies. We also provide guidelines to help energy companies understand the information we require before they make an application for a change to their rates or corporate structure or for approval to sell their assets or build new projects.

Listed below are the regulatory instruments that govern the energy industry participants, such as codes, guidelines and accounting. Information related to the electricity and natural gas reporting & record keeping requirements can be found under the RRR section of our website.
