For the purposes of
calculating the Capital Base at the commencement of the subsequent Access
Arrangement Period, either the Reference Tariff Policy should describe or the
Relevant Regulator shall determine when the Relevant Regulator considers
revisions to an Access Arrangement submitted by a Service Provider, how the
New Facilities Investment is to be determined for the purposes of section 8.9.
This includes how the Capital Base at the commencement of the next Access
Arrangement Period will be adjusted if the actual New Facilities Investment or
Recoverable Portion (whichever is relevant) is different from the forecast New
Facilities Investment (with this decision to be designed to best meet the
objectives in section 8.1).
