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.

The ACCC intends to make a decision regarding the notification in November/December 2020. This will be either a decision to issue a draft notice to revoke the notification, or a decision to take no further action and allow the notification to stand.
