HP TRIM Record Number: D14/149705

Security Classification:       UNCLASSIFIED


Dear Ms McDonald

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Auto & General Insurance Company Ltd & Auto & General Services Pty Ltd on 16 January 2015. They have been allocated registration numbers N98089 & N98090. 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 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 Hannah Ransom on 02 6243 1255 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
