    Consultation

    Public consultation on the draft SEQ Code was undertaken in mid-2012. The SEQ water providers revised the SEQ Code after considering the 24 submissions received.  The Consultation Report provides a summary of the consultation process and the common themes from the submissions.

    The final SEQ Code was adopted by the SEQ water service providers in early 2013 and gazetted by the Minister on 1 July 2013.

    This is a significant step forward in bringing together technical standards across South East Queensland.  However it is not the end of the process.  The SEQ Code will be reviewed regularly and to ensure that best appropriate practice is adopted.

    Genuine innovative ideas and methods that enhance functionality and reduce lifecycle costs will be encouraged and considered and adopted through an appropriate screening process.

    Section 99BF of the South East Queensland Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) Act 2009 allows for amendments to be made to the SEQ Code.  Amendments to correct a minor error; that are not a change of substance; or are of a stated type can be made by the SEQ water service providers.  More substantial changes will need to be readvertised for public comment as per the requirements of the Restructuring Act.

    The Accepted Infrastructure Products and Materials (IPAM) Lists will change regularly as product suppliers approach service providers to have their products accepted.  It is impractical to advertise each change via newspapers.  Changes to the Accepted IPAM Lists are considered a “stated” type as per the Restructuring Act.

    Likewise, the ADAC drafting standards change on a regular basis.  It is impractical to advertise each change via newspapers.  Changes to the Asset Information Specification are considered a “stated” type as per the Restructuring Act.

    All changes to the SEQ Code will be detailed in the ‘Latest News’ section on the Homepage.  Every person or organisation who has registered an interest in the SEQ Code and provided an e-mail address will also be advised of changes via e-mail.

    The five SEQ water service providers will ensure that the SEQ Code is efficient and practical.  Your help is appreciated.  Forward your suggestions and comments for future revisions of the SEQ Code via the Document Improvement Request Form found on the Contact Us page.
