General Conduct Rule (SE-112)

The IESO has identified the need for a new market rule that promotes market participant conduct that is consistent with the objectives of the Market Rules and the purposes of the Electricity Act, 1998. This stakeholder engagement initiative invites interested stakeholders to participate in the development of a framework for a general conduct rule.

A new general conduct rule is intended to help market participants understand their obligation to support the well-functioning of the IESO-administered markets. The Stakeholder Engagement Plan defines the opportunity for stakeholder involvement through the following three phases:​

  • Phase I: Present Position Paper outlining the purpose and need of a general conduct rule
  • Phase II: Seek input from stakeholders on a proposed market rule framework
  • Phase III: Present draft market rule language

This engagement opportunity is open to all stakeholders including existing and future Ontario market participants.
