Subject:                                     Third Line Forcing Notification N99672 lodged by The Trustee for 24 Carat Unit Trust t/a Shiels Jewellers [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]


Security Classification:       UNCLASSIFIED


Dear Mr Bensimon

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by The Trustee for 24 Carat Unit Trust trading as Shiels Jewellers on 18 May 2017. It has been allocated the registration number N99672. 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 Matthew Oakeshott on 02 6243 1184 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
