Transfer a NEM registration
This page provides an overview of the tasks required to transfer a National Electricity Market (NEM) registration.
Transferring a registration
Under National Electricity Rules clause 2.9A, a Registered Participant (transferor) can apply to AEMO to transfer its registration in a particular category to another person (transferee). The transferee must establish that it meets all the eligibility criteria for registration in that category
If there is no intermediary relationship involved, and if there is no material change to the way the underlying facilities are classified, the transferee and the transferor must each complete the forms and provide the additional documentation indicated below.
If this is not the case, the transfer may need to be treated as a new application for registration. Please contact AEMO to discuss your requirements in this situation.
The following documents are to be used when transferring a registration in the NEM.
The relevant application forms must be completed to transfer a registration from a Registered Participant to another person. The forms provide further details about what is required for transferring a registration and should be read in conjunction with the Generator Transfer Guide.
