Subject: Correspondence from the ACCC re exclusive dealing notification N97541 [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]
Security Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Dear Ms Gray
I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Argyle Soap & Candles Pty Ltd on 30 June 2014. It has been allocated the registration number N97541. 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 David Hatfield on 02 6243 1266 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this matter.
