Subject:                                     Third Line Forcing Notification N99146 lodged by LG Electronics Australia Pty Limited [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]

 

Security Classification:       For Official Use Only

 

Dear Ms Edghill

 

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by LG Electronics Australia Pty Limited on 10 June 2016. It has been allocated the registration number N99146. 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 Kathryn Burela on 03 9290 1474 or by email to adjudication@accc.gov.au if you have any questions about this matter.

Regards
