The Solar Retailer Code of Conduct was initially authorised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in October 2013. In April 2015, minor amendments were made to the Code and the ACCC re-authorised it for a period of five years in October 2015.
With this authorisation period coming to an end in 2020, the Clean Energy Council sought a further re-authorisation of the Code and suggested a number of minor amendments to bring it up to date and in line with industry developments.
On 19 November 2020, the amended Code was granted re-authorisation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) until 31 July 2023, subject to no further applications for review being made. Visit the ACCC's website to read more about the authorisation process.
