Subject:                                       Correspondence from the ACCC re exclusive dealing notification N97766 [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]


Security Classification:             UNCLASSIFIED


Dear Ms Murphy

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Bupa Australia Pty Ltd on 29 August 2014. It has been allocated the registration number N97766. The notification and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website.

The protection from legal action provided by the notification commences automatically 14 days after the lodgement date, unless the ACCC objects.

On the basis of the information that you have provided, and that the parties will disclose all relevant terms and conditions to customers, the ACCC does not object to the notification at this time.

If at any time circumstances change, or the ACCC receives further information, such that it is satisfied that the public benefits from the third line forcing conduct do not outweigh the public detriments, the ACCC may remove the protection provided by the notification.


Please contact Jaime Martin on 03 9290 1477 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
