IPART makes the people of NSW better off through independent decisions and advice.
Our role
We make the people of NSW better off through independent decisions and advice.
The review process
IPART’s credibility as an independent regulator and advisor relies on the rigour of our process, the effectiveness of our determinations and the impartiality of our recommendations.
The Tribunal & Executive team
A government-appointed Tribunal of three permanent members, and occasionally temporary members, leads IPART. It is advised by a Secretariat of highly experienced economists, financial analysts, lawyers, engineers and other professionals.
IPART is an independent authority established under the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal Act 1992. We report each year on our performance to the NSW Parliament.
