Effective economic regulation essential to ensuring sustainable investment in infrastructure
The Competition Law and Economics Workshop is an annual event now co-hosted by the University of South Australia and the ACCC.
ACCC Chair Rod Sims delivers an address to the CommsDay Summit in Sydney. Mr Sims discusses how the cost of NBN plans is becoming a growing affordability issue for people on lower incomes, with the plans now more expensive than what most consumers pay for equivalent ADSL plans.
On 5 April 2019, the ACCC released its final determination on ARTC's compliance for the 2015 calendar year. The ACCC's final determination document is provided below.
The ACCC today published the draft rules for the Consumer Data Right (CDR) and is seeking feedback from consumers, businesses and community organisations.
The CDR will allow consumers to easily obtain access to their banking data and have it transferred to service providers who they trust.
This might, for example, be comparator or switching services, or providers of financial or budgeting advice. While commencing in the banking sector, it will eventually apply across a range of sectors.
