This Chapter considers a number of sector-specific access regimes that apply to infrastructure that exhibits natural monopoly characteristics. With the exception of Pt XIC of the CCA which regulates access to telecommunications infrastructure, they adopt the same form of negotiate-arbitrate model found in Pt IIIA of the CCA. In the event of a failure to negotiate commercial terms and conditions of access they allow the regulator to impose cost based (building block)tariffs. The regulator's decisions are subject to merits review and/or judicial review.
The Chapter is divided into four Parts:
• Part I considers access regulation in the electricity sector;
• Part II considers access regulation in the gas sector;
• Part III considers access regulation in the telecommunications sector; and
• Part N considers access regulation in relation to port and rail bulk supply chains.
