Water and Sewerage

Price Regulation
>Prices & Productivity

Under the current price regulatory arrangement for Water & Sewerage services, the ICCC uses a price-cap approach to determine the Maximum Average Prices (MAPs) for water and sewerage services supplied by Water PNG Limited. This arrangement provides some flexibility on the water utility to decide on its individual bands and tariffs, but within the parameter that the entity’s volume-weighted average prices for all its bands and tariffs must not exceed the ICCC-approved MAPs. This regulatory arrangement commenced in January 2023 and will be reviewed in January 2027, in view of its expiry in December 2027.
