'Competition Policy Review Draft Report makes recommendations concerning shipping industry'

Tuesday October 21, 2014

The Competition Policy Review Panel has recommended that the shipping industry be subject to the normal operation of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) and that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission be given power to grant block exemptions from cartel conduct prohibitions. Part X of the CCA allows liner shipping operators to enter into agreements amongst themselves on the freight rates to be charged, and the quantity and kinds of cargo to be carried, particular trade routes and to register those agreements with the Registrar of Liner Shipping. Such registration confers an exemption from the cartel conduct prohibitions and section 45 and section 47 of the CCA. In its recommendations, the Panel has suggested that Part X should be repealed and the shipping industry should be subject to the normal operation of the CCA
