Assessing the application

The Clean Energy Regulator will determine if your application meets the requirements for a ‘properly made’ application in accordance with section 13 of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 (REE Act). The assessment also determines whether the application contains information that will satisfy the eligibility criteria set out in section 14 of the REE Act and related regulations.

Further information may be requested at this stage, you will be notified via email. Power stations that are in the process of being commissioned can supply outstanding documents that were not available prior to the initial application submission.

If your application is materially incomplete and is not ‘properly made’, the application may be refused. If you do not respond to a request for further information within a specified timeframe, your application for accreditation may be refused.

Extensions to the time limit for assessment

The agency must make a decision about your application for accreditation within six weeks from when the application was considered properly made and the accreditation fee paid, unless a longer period is agreed to.

If further time is required in order to obtain documentation to satisfy the accreditation eligibility requirements, email the agency to request the extension of the time limit for assessment. Provide the name of the power station, the reason you require an extension, and the date you propose to extend the time limit to.
