Cartel immunity

If you're aware of cartel conduct or are involved in a cartel, you can make a report to the ACCC and apply for immunity from prosecution.

Apply for immunity

The ACCC has a policy to provide greater certainty for immunity applicants so we are better able to detect and break up cartels operating in Australia.

Be the first to apply for immunity from prosecution in exchange for helping us with our investigations by contacting:

A revised immunity policy came into effect on 1 October 2019.

This policy sets out the ACCC’s approach to applications for immunity from proceedings initiated or authorised by the ACCC or the Office of the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) in relation to cartel conduct, and how cooperation provided to the ACCC by cartel participants will be recognised.
