COGATI Proposed Access Model � Discussion Paper

An AFMA submission to the AEMC on a discussion paper regarding COGATI proposed access model. �We reiterated our comments made in our response to the April consultation paper.� In previous submissions, and in several submissions by individual AFMA members, our key concern relates to the potential detrimental effects of the proposals on financial market liquidity. Furthermore, given that the proposed access model represents such fundamental reform if implemented, we believe the AEMC should consider implementation timing which is commensurate with the significance of the proposed change, and a detailed cost-benefit analysis of the change before a decision on implementation is made.
