Call for submissions to the ports pricing and access review
The Commission is calling for submissions to its review of the ports access regime and the ports pricing regime
- The Commission must conduct a review of the industries subject to Part 3 of the Maritime Services (Access) Act , which regulates access to maritime services at proclaimed ports, to determine whether or not that Part should continue to apply to those industries.
- Having conducted that review, the Commission must advise the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport of the review outcomes and make a recommendation as to whether or not the regime should continue in operation for a further five years from 31 October 2022.
- The Commission will also review its 2017 ports price determination. The review will consider whether the pricing regime should continue and, if so, in what form, and specify the expiry date.
Submissions and input are welcomed on any topics relevant to the review.
