Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N99834 & N99835 lodged by MDA National Limited and MDA National Insurance Pty Ltd [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Mr Webster

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by MDA National Limited and MDA National Insurance Pty Ltd on 23 August 2017.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N99834 & N99835.  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 notificatiosn 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 notificatiosn.


Please contact Elizabeth Batten on (02) 6243 1359 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
