The Government has announced a new COVID-19 Protection Framework to replace the existing Alert Level system when it is safe to do, supported by COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates. These rules are not in place yet. For further information please see the Unite Against COVID-19 website(external link).
MBIE is seeking submissions on an exposure draft of regulations to be made under sections 227 and 228 of the Telecommunications Act 2001.
The feedback from this consultation will be used to advise the Government on the final form of the regulations that identify the anchor services and direct fibre access service that the wholesale supplier (Chorus) must offer its customers in the new regulatory regime.
