Managing Market Information
AEMO publishes a variety of information and documents on this website, including information required to be published by the Market Rules.
Since the commencement of energy trading in the Wholesale Electricity Market (WEM), this website has been continually revised to improve the provision of relevant information to Market Participants and to the public.
If you are seeking information that does not appear in this section of the website, or the Market Data Site, please contact the AEMO at email@example.com and we will endeavour to assist you to source your required information.
Market Information Confidentiality
In general, a Rule Participant must not provide information or documents of a given confidentiality status to any person who is not a member of a class able to receive that document.
There are 6 confidentiality classes, into which all documents and information relating to the operation of the WEM and the Market Rules must be classified:
2. Rule Participant Market Restricted
3. Rule Participant Dispatch Restricted
4. System Management Confidential
5. IMO and AEMO Confidential
6. Rule Participant Network Restricted
AEMO has prepared a list of market documents and the confidentiality status of each as at 1 July 2012.
