Summary

On 19 October 2020, CPB Contractors Pty Limited lodged an exclusive dealing notification with the ACCC. CPB Contractors proposes to insert an annual audit requirement into its pre-tender documents and subcontracting agreements with heavy vehicle subcontractors. This will require heavy vehicle subcontractors to acquire an annual audit from an auditor that has been specified on a non-exhaustive, preferred auditor list, which will be maintained by CPB Contractors. CPB Contractors will permit heavy vehicle subcontractors to nominate and acquire services from other auditors with whom they have a prior relationship and/or who can demonstrate that they are of similar quality, knowledge, skill and experience to the selected preferred auditors. 

A copy of the notification is available under the ‘Notifications’ heading below.

On 11 December 2020, the ACCC decided to take no further action and allow the notification to stand. Further information is contained in a letter sent to CPB Contractors, which is available under the ‘ACCC correspondence’ heading below.
