Description of Conduct

On 20 June 2014 Tooltechnic lodged an application seeking authorisation to amend its agreements with its Festool dealers to include a requirement for resellers to not sell any Festool product below a price(s) nominated by Tooltechnic (Proposed Arrangement). The implementation of the Proposed Arrangement will be the inclusion of a pricing clause in Tooltechnic's agreements with its dealers which will mandate dealers are not to sell any Festool product below a price(s) nominated by Tooltechnic.

On 21 October 2014 the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to grant conditional authorisation in respect of the Proposed Arrangements for three years.

On 5 December 2014 the ACCC granted authorisation A91433 to Tooltechnic to set minimum retail prices on Festool products until 31 December 2018.
