Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N98893 - N98897 lodged by The Trustee for the Baglin Family Trust & Ors [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]

 

Security Classification:       For Official Use Only

 

Dear Ms Owen

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by The Trustee for the Baglin Family Trust; Cucina 105 Ristorante Pty Ltd; Youth Corporation Pty Ltd; Sando Food Pty Ltd and Numberseven Pty Ltd on 4 February 2016.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N98893 through to N98897.   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 Elizabeth Batten on (02) 6243 1359 or by email to adjudication@accc.gov.au if you have any questions about this matter.

 

Regards
