Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N98059-N98073 lodged by VSP Global [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       UNCLASSIFIED For Official Use Only


Dear Mr Lewis

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by VSP Global on 19 December 2014.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N98059-N98073. The notifications 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 notifications 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 notifications 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 notifications.


Please contact Luke Griffin on (02) 6243 1114 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
