Submissions to first interim report29 May 2019

On 18 December 2018, we released our first interim report setting out our findings about the operation of markets for home, contents and strata insurance markets in northern Australia. We provided the report to the Treasurer on 30 November 2018.

The report made 15 recommendations that we consider will improve the operation of these insurance markets and achieve better outcomes for the consumers. We also made 13 draft recommendations that have the potential to make these markets work more efficiently.

Submissions in response to the draft recommendations closed on Friday 12 April 2019.


The inquiry is a public process and written feedback will be published on the ACCC website.

The ACCC can accept a claim of confidentiality from the party if the disclosure of information would damage their competitive position. Further information is contained in our interim report.

We have removed individuals' contact details from their submissions. We also offered each individual choice to opt out of having their name published.
