Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N100044 & N100045 lodged by Commonwealth Bank of Australia & Collinson Group Pty Ltd [DLM=Sensitive]


Security Classification:       Sensitive


Dear Mr Lam

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Commonwealth Bank of Australia & Collinson Group Pty Ltd on 2 November 2017. They have been allocated the registration numbers N100044 & N100045. 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 notification.

Please contact Luke Griffin on 02 6243 1114 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
