Amendment to variation application - clause 2.3(e)

On 23 May 2018 ARTC sent the ACCC a letter setting out an amendment it proposes to include in a revised variation application to the current HVAU. The amendment, developed in conjunction with stakeholders, proposes to insert an additional clause 2.3(e) to address concerns raised in respect of the application of the proposed dual ceiling in future versions of the HVAU.
