Subject:                                     Third line forcing notification N99168 lodged by Novale Bathrooms Corporate Pty Limited [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Ms Luckman

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Novale Bathrooms Corporate Pty Limited on 23 June 2016.   It has been allocated the registration number N99168.  The notification and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website. Your request to exclude the franchise agreement and list of approved suppliers has been noted. These documents will not be placed on the public register.

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.
