On 20 December 2007 the Australian Rail Track Corporation Ltd submitted a revised voluntary rail access undertaking to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for assessment under Part IIIA of the Trade Practices Act 1974. A copy of ARTC's undertaking and supporting documentation is available on the ACCC website.
The undertaking is a revised version of an undertaking lodged with the ACCC on 8 June 2007 but subsequently withdrawn by ARTC on 15 October 2007.
The revised undertaking contains a number of changes to the June undertaking.
As part of the assessment process, the ACCC has distributed an Issues Paper to stakeholders identifying and asking for comments on the changes to the undertaking.
The due date for submissions is Friday 8 February 2008. A copy of the Issues Paper is available on the ACCC website. The assessment process will also include a draft decision and a further round of submissions.
