Managing market information
AEMO publishes a variety of information and documents on this website, including information the WEM Rules require us to publish.
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.
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 six confidentiality classes, into which all documents and information relating to the operation of the WEM and the WEM Rules must be classified:
- Rule Participant Market Restricted.
- Rule Participant Dispatch Restricted.
- System Management Confidential.
- IMO and AEMO Confidential.
- Rule Participant Network Restricted.
AEMO has prepared a list of market documents and the confidentiality status of each, as at 1 July 2012.
