Final

The Commission has concluded its Review on the Ports Access Regime. Having considered the submissions from interested parties, the Commission recommends that the Ports Access Regime should continue for a further three years. The effect of this recommendation would be to allow the Ports Access Regime to continue in operation from 1 November 2004 up to and including 31 October 2007. However, continuation requires that the South Australian Government make a regulation extending its operation accordingly. The Commission has also identified some ancillary adjustments that the government may wish to make to the regime.
