Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N99451-N99454 lodged by McKay Taree Nominees Trust & Ors [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]

 

Security Classification:       For Official Use Only

 

Dear Mr Walter

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by McKay Taree Nominees Trust & O’Neill Taree Nominees Trust (dba Eyecare Plus Gloucester and Eyecare Plus Taree), Michael A. Wicks & Associates Pty Ltd (dba Wicks Eyecare), and Azzam Health Services Pty Ltd (dba Community Eye Care) on 28 November 2016.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N99451 to N99454.  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 Mr Saraj Bhullar on (03) 9290 1941 or by email to adjudication@accc.gov.au if you have any questions about this matter.

 

Regards
