Subject:                                     Third Line Forcing Notifications N99358 & N99359 lodged by Commonwealth Bank of Australia & Flight Centre Travel Group Limited [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Ms Pegnall


I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Commonwealth Bank of Australia & Flight Centre Travel Group Limited on 29 September 2016. They have been allocated the registration numbers N99358 & N99359. 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 Kathryn Burela on 03 9290 1474 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
