We will assess the application against the criteria outlined in section 10(4) of the WIC Act. The criteria include our assessment of whether the applicant has the technical, financial and organisational capacity to undertake the activities that a licence, if granted, would authorise.
Once we have completed our assessment, we will provide a report to the Minister for Energy and Utilities recommending whether or not the Minister should grant NWS the licences or not. We will also recommend what conditions should be on the licences, if granted.
The Minister is responsible for deciding whether or not to grant NWS the licences under the WIC Act.
Our website provides further information on the WIC Act.
