Description of Conduct

On 12 July 2012, the South East Potato Growers Association (SEPGA) applied for revocation of A91057 and the substitution of authorisation A91322
to allow present and future members of the SEPGA to collectively negotiate the terms and conditions of supply contracts with processors and other buyers, as well as establish a price recommendation for the supply of seed potatoes to other potato growers in Australia.

On 12 December 2012, the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation in respect of the collective bargaining arrangements for five years. The ACCC decided not to grant authorisation in respect of establishing the seed price recommendation. A copy of the determination is available by following the links below. The ACCC's decision will take effect on 22 January 2013.
