Specialist licences

Specialist licences are designed for suppliers who wish to focus on identifying cost savings and helping their customers apply for a departure from the wholesale charge. You can apply for both water and sewerage specialist licences.

Specialist licence holders are eligible to:

  • supply customers who receive a discount to their wholesale charge;
  • participate in the CMA technical panel;
  • nominate and vote for members of the CMA board.

As a specialist licence holder, you are not required to offer the default package of tariffs and services to all customers. However, you are only eligible to supply customers who have successfully applied, or are in the process of applying, for a departure from their wholesale charge.
