Subject: Correspondence from the ACCC re exclusive dealing notification
Security Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Dear Mr Knox
I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Housing Authority on 28 August 2015. It has been allocated the registration number N98514. 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 Gina D’Ettorre on 03 9290 1483 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this matter.
