The Maritime Services (Access) Act 2000 requires the Essential Services Commission to review the South Australian ports pricing and access regimes every five years. The Commission’s 2017 Ports Pricing and Access Review is being conducted to meet this requirement.

The Review will consider the following questions:

  • Should the ports access regime continue for a further five‐year period from 31 October 2017?
  • Should the ports price regulation regime for Essential Maritime Services continue for a further five-year period from 31 October 2017? If it is to continue, what form of price regulation should be adopted?
