Utilities Regulatory Authority

Mr John Chaniel, ChairmanWelcome to the Utilities Regulatory Authority’s website.

Our responsibility to you is to ensure that you can get the most out of your browser experience as you navigate through the URA Website.

The website is a user-friendly and informative site that I believe will provide you with the necessary information you require on utility regulations in Vanuatu.  

This website is intended to present the Utilities Regulatory Authority’s functions to the public at large. Some core functions of the Authority are to ensure the provision of safe, affordable, reliable electricity service and water supply in Vanuatu which will have some impact on the sustainable development in Vanuatu.

Readers can subscribe to the News page to receive mail updates on the Authority’s decisions, announcements, and planned actions.
