Commission may issue notice to aid prevention of price exploitation in relation to the carbon tax repeal

  (a)   be expressed to be given under this section; and

  (b)   be expressed to relate to any supply that the entity makes that is:

  (i)   of a kind specified in the notice; and

  (ii)   made in circumstances specified in the notice; and

  (iii)   made during the period specified in the notice (which must not be a period ending after the end of the carbon tax repeal transition period); and

  (c)   specify the maximum price that, in the Commission's opinion, may be charged for a supply to which the notice is expressed to relate.

  (3)   The Commission may, on its own initiative or on application made by the entity:
