Description of Conduct

TSA is seeking authorisation to allow for the continuation of the national Tyre Stewardship Scheme. The Scheme is a voluntary, industry led program with the primary aim of increasing the recycling rate of end-of-life tyres.

TSA is seeking authorisation for specific provisions of the TSS Guidelines, which govern the Scheme. The guidelines require, among other things, that Scheme members only deal with other members of the scheme (where possible) and imposes a levy on tyre importers ($0.25 per tyre in 2013, adjusted annually for CPI).

On 24 May 2018, the ACCC released its determination granting authorisation for 6 years.

A copy of the determination is available by following the links below.
