ARTC is required to review the accepted access undertaking five years after the commencement date to determine whether any amendments to the undertaking are required as a result of changes to industry circumstances or Government legislation, rules, or regulations.
In October 2013, ARTC provided a letter to stakeholders describing the requirements and scope of the five year review and seeking their comments. Submissions closed on 29 November 2013. ARTC received seven submissions in response.
In April 2014, ARTC provided a letter to the ACCC advising that it did not intend to submit any proposed amendments to the undertaking on the basis that the costs associated with seeking a variation would outweigh any benefits that might be achieved.
