Subject:                                     Third line forcing notification N99541 lodged by Macquarie Bank Limited [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Mr Thomasson

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Macquarie Bank Limited on 16 January 2017. It has been allocated the registration number N99541. 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 Fei Wu on 03 9290 1987 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
